RIVERA & RIVERA Gallery is proud to announce the opening of Street Legal, an exhibition of original artwork by legendary Los Angeles street artists, Mear One, Kofie, El Mac, and Retna.

Opening in conjunction with Vox Humana, a live art performance by these same artists at the Los Angeles Convention Center during the L.A. Art Show 2010, this exhibition will showcase more than 25 works of art, including the unveiling of Mear One’s monumental sculpture entitled “Pillar of Consciousness.”

While wildly diverse in styles, media, and scale, this unique group of artists have transcended street writing and evolved their work into one of the most challenging and sophisticated contemporary art forms.
