While the Ex Vandals were murking their wall, 4 of Oaklands finest artists joined forces with two of Phoenix's top artists to pay homage to the glory days of 80's graff and street culture. Griffin One, Ernest Doty, Onedr, Nite Owl, Champ and Such Styles all rocked the neighboring wall. Once again put on by Pete Brennan Productions, Loakal Gallery and Know Such Things, this wall brought the Funk to the town! Mainly character based this wall provided a counterpoint to the EX Vandals production. While these artists may not have the history that the Ex Vandals do, they surely brought the same level of talent to these walls. These 6 artists accepted the challenge of paying homage to Kenny Scharf, Futura, Keith Haring, Fab Five Freddy and all the other artists that were creating the FUN vibe back in the days.





To show their approval of the other wall, Wicked Gary asked Agana and Stab to link both walls by extending their pieces onto the Elefunk Wall. RESPECT !

Fun times, and looking forward to doing this again next year. This event has already been approved by all parties involved to be an annual happening out in Oakland.

See ya in 2014. Peace, Love and Respect to the EX VANDALS crew and Patti Astor who was the reason for all this paint!
