An Expansive Public Art Commission Created in Partnership With The Los Angeles City Council, The Do Art Foundation, and Legendary Developments LLC.
March 25, 2013 (Los Angeles, CA)
Acclaimed Brazilian design & illustration collective, Bicicleta Sem Freio, formed in Goiânia, Brazil, in 2005 by graphic designers Douglas Castro, Victor Rocha, and Renato Reno, are internationally famed for their large-scale public artworks, typified by highly-expressive line work, & expansive colour palettes.
Juxtaposing surreal, often-provocative temptresses, with tentacled marine life, phantoms, kaleidoscopic flesh work, classic rock n' roll iconography, chopped motorcycles, &, more flesh, Bicicleta Sem Freio will create a colossal public mural, across all four floors of Legendary investors Group No 1, LLC's 420 Boyd Street Building.
Whilst Bicicleta Sem Freio attends to the building's exterior, within, L.A. Visual Artists DevnGosha will create another public artwork throughout the address's atriums & stairwells.
DevnGosha are artists Devin Liston & Gosha Levochkin. A collaboration formed in 2012, Devin's past work had centred about portraiture, an emphasis he found ready expression, & hybridisation, within L.A. based mural collective, Cyrcle. Gosha's work by contrast, found greatest expression in explorations of the urban landscape, & the affects of such upon inhabitants, created largely in watercolour.
Increasingly exhibiting throughout L.A whilst gaining broader visibility, through a series of recent large-scale mural commissions, DevnGosha's emergent, more restrained line-imagery & disjointed scenery, find ready complement in the brilliant swathes of candy colour & bold pop iconography, of Brazilians, Bicicleta Sem Freio.
Bicicleta Sem Freio and DevnGosha were commissioned by Legendary Developments, LLC, in collaboration with The DoArt Foundation and the Los Angeles City Council.
