Stash and Slick present "RUST IN PIECE" | Event photos!

This past Thursday marked a historical exhibition for two of today's and yesteday's most influential graff artists. Connecting the bridge between NY and LA, Stash and Slick created a nice flow of art, multimedia, music, drinks, goodie bags and good friends. All going down in the back gallery over at Melt Comics. If you need your comic fix, this is the place to be. Toys, comics, vintage posters, vintage collectables and even $1000 dollar toddler Nike leather jackets... this place has everything you can possibly imagine.

SecretEmpire was on hand to take part in the celebration and to snap some photos for Rime. Tons of people showed up and the event was a huge success.

Peep the flyer for location info. Show runs from November 9 - December 22, 2006.

Enjoy the flix...

Movement: Hip Hop in LA | Art show photos

Friday evening served as a night of art, culture and hip hop in LA history, and we had SecretEmpire's very own Pat Martinez involved with the event showing his Tupac piece. With LA talents showing art ranging from traditional paintings, graffiti, photography, installations, video and even chocolates... the city can sleep a little easier knowing hip hop in LA, after all these years, has had a positive effect on the city and its' youth.

A big thank you to the Department of Cultural Affairs for the City of Los Angeles. They put on a very fresh event featuring historical artifacts from LA's extensive history in Hip Hop and Rime Magazine had the honor to be a sponsor. SecretEmpire was on hand taking photos for Rime.

Special shout out to all who participated: Marcus Anthony, B+, Chaz Bojorquez, Greg Bojorquez, Raul "Frame" Gamboa, Ben Higa, Abraham Kalili, Kazz B, Kofie, Jonus Lara, Man One, Patrick Martinez, Mathew McDaniel, Mear, Eriberto Oriol, Estevan Oriol, Relic, Retna, Tempt One, Saber One, Sherm, Eric "Cre8" Walker and Ani Yapundzhyan.

Here's some photo's... enjoy!
