Saber, The American Graffiti Artist

Graffiti Flags | US-American graffiti artist Saber got a massive popularity push back in 2009 when he created that brilliant graffiti flag video to support the US-American health care reforms by Barack Obama. Afterwards Jeffrey Deitch, the famous director of the controversial MoCA in Los Angeles, decided to support Saber as one of the most representational figures for today’s graffiti and street art movement.

Featuring a level of sophisticated detail, including collaging, and the skill you would expect from one of the world’s greatest graffiti writers, these pieces represent an artist at the top of his game. (Arrested Motion)

Yesterday, Saber opened his solo-show at New York’s Opera Gallery, which again features a series of the artist’s popular Flag paintings. Fortunately Arrested Motion got some pretty nice photos of the artworks as they were situated in the setting of their creation – I like this stuff…
