Miami Graffiti Goes National

In March, we reported on the release of Miami Graffiti, a photography book by New York husband-and-wife duo James and Karla Murray that captures the unique culture and handiwork of some of our finest street artists. Tommorow, the work of those same graff artists- and the photographers- will be honored in a fancy-schmancy opening at a Los Angeles Art gallery. It kind of tickles us to think of affluent art-collector types washing cubed cheese down with pinot grigio as they study photos of the "vandalism" our politicians have vowed to eradicate. Check out the promotional video above, which interestingly eschews much footage of murals and instead shows some cool shots of real Miami.
