Saber’s American Graffiti Flags

Arrested Motion once again managed to penetrate the inner sanctum of a seminal graffiti and fine artist, this time as SABER is gearing up for his solo show entitled The American Graffiti Artist. These reinterpretations of Flag, a piece created as a political statement in support of healthcare reform, are once again reimagined with drawn from graphical elements of LA graff.

It’s interesting to see that from the appropriation of a national image, these works are suddenly very geographically and art-historically situated. Once again, we are seeing that encroachment of graff into a new setting and with it, the shedding of old meaning and adoption of new symbology.
