DTLA based Aguas Frescas Start-Up to Unveil February Art Walk Installation by Masked Underground Street Artist and Edition 100
Video Conceals Identity and Captures “rizo” Painting their First Indoor Installation; Other Artists Include Brooke Ashe and Edition 100
Los Angeles, CA – In collaboration with Downtown LA’s February Art Walk, Los Angeles based beverage company, Cobá, has teamed up with Edition 100 artists, Brooke Ashe, and street artist rizo for a special art reveal with a social cause.
Edition 100 features local artists who want to knock down the gallery walls and provide affordable and visible art for all art lovers. In addition to making their art available to the public, a portion of their proceeds is dedicated to the social cause of their choice. Brooke Ashe’s charity for example, is The Sean O’Shea Foundation www.seanosheafoundation.org, an NPO that is designed to empower youth with a Yoga curriculum. For more information on Editions of 100 artists or to purchase a piece visit www.editionsof100.com.
Brooke Ashe is a triple threat: artist, poet and filmmaker. She incorporates her political activism in all of her work. A veteran of MEChA, this Irish-Mexican Chicana was born in Florida but grew up in Los Angeles. Her art expresses modern problems through an ancient lens. Don’t let her youthful look fool you, there is an old soul behind those eyes.
Along with individual pieces provided by The Edition 100 artists and Brooke Ashe, Cobá is excited to be a part of street artist rizo’s Downtown LA gallery debut. Visiting from Mexico City, rizo has already made a splash in the Mexican street art world however, having grown up in Pomona rizo’s practically back at home. rizo’s latest work can be seen popping up around the streets of Los Angeles with the signature owl & brass knuckles prints. A student of Native American culture, rizo believes the owl’s visage was sent from the spirit world to protect urban dwellers. This Thursday, Cobá’s gallery will host rizo’s first indoor street art installation. For a sneak peak video: http://blog.drinkcoba.
