Artist responsible for Grand Rapids' legal graffiti wall mounts solo exhibition at Krasl Art Center

Spring hours offer the community more days to experience art

Krasl Art Center (KAC) welcomes graffiti artist Guillermo ‘ASMA Speeks’ Sotelo March 12 - May 15, 2022. Broken Alphabet: a love letter to Graffiti’ will be featured in The Lab, a dedicated venue for installation, time-based media, sound, and light that is not afraid to showcase the fruit of visual experimentation. The exhibition includes in-person and virtual events that invite the community to explore an ancient art form not often seen indoors. KAC is free and open to the public with new hours seven days a week.

 

Tag. Bomb. Hit. Slam.A language all its own, graffiti breaks and twists conventional terms and imagery (down to the letter) into beautiful and complex new forms. With over a decade of experience, Guillermo ‘ASMA Speeks’ Sotelo brings graffiti indoors to reveal insights to the process, share the history and technique, and change the stigma around this art form. 

 

Meet the artist and learn more about his exhibition during virtual tours, live conversations, and special events.More information on these programs can be found at krasl.org/events/featured-events/:
