KAABOO Del Mar has done it again. The impressive culmination of its second annual “Mix-perience” at the historic Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds in sunny Del Mar, CA exceeded bold new boundaries and expectations with the ArtworK experience. The grandiose array of contemporary art, live mural painting, glowing art installations and unique fine artworks by dozens of globally acclaimed artists took KAABOO guests on an unparalleled visual journey. More images, information and recap video after the jump.
In a peculiar meeting of friendship and styles, our all chrome aficionado, KEMS, welcomed a visit from Parisian good-guy GOMER in April. He arrived as Boston’s winter was going the way of the groundhog, the locals hoping it wouldn’t see its shadow and curse them with another six weeks of winter. Rather than stay to find out, the duo loaded up an unassuming rently with Lak, and clocked miles on the dash for an extended week long USA-only spraycation. After being turned away from the Canadian border, KEMS and GOMER travelled 2000 miles, touching up abandos and local spots in random towns through-out New England and New York. Nine days, a helluvalotta Lak and good times. Enjoy.

The skincancer awareness foundation Spot the Dot organized the very first “Art Against Skincancer” event together with Vienna based Design Agency Traktor on September 8. Besides hosting a group exhibition of fine art prints made for their cause they invited the world famous street artist Nychos to do a live painting inspired by the theme skincancer. He showed approx 150 visitors live and over 400k viewers via live video broadcasts how he makes such a facemelting mural.
This image will hopefully inspire many people to talk and think about the importance of prevention and detection of skincancer. More info via http://www.spotthedot.org

Spot the Dot is a non-profit foundation to raise awareness of melanoma and other types of skincancer. Each year millions of people globally are diagnosed with several types of skin cancer. Melanoma is for example the leading cause of cancer death in young women ages 25-30 and the second leading cause of cancer death in women ages 30-35 (Source: Melanoma Research Foundation). When prevention fails, catching skin cancer early is crucial and highly treatable. Taking note of changes on your skin is key – Make sure you spot the dot!

Our main man Justin Guenet recently rocked a fresh tribute to his beloved hockey team the Montreal Canadiens. Painted clean and crisp on the streets of his native Montreal, peep the video below for documentation.
Shalak Attack & Bruno Smoky are two of the most talented street artists I have every come to know and some of the most beautiful people to work with and it was a pleasure to have them in Kelowna and bringing in some of their colours and imagery which come from within and leaves a piece of them behind for us all to enjoy.
