C.A.V.E. Gallery: Restitution Taco Opening Tonight!

The C.A.V.E. Gallery will host an opening reception for “Restitution Taco”, an exhibition showcasing new works by Restitution Press, AKA Ryan Graeff, whose iconic imagery has appeared in the streets of Los Angeles for the better part of the last decade, this evening from 7-10pm.

Restitution Taco

Photographs used in the creation of the work were culled from the extensive image library captured over the years by (Yo! Venice! favorite) L.A. TACO, a website and artists collective whose mission is to “celebrate the taco lifestyle in Los Angeles, California”.

This solo show will feature a new collection of work that celebrates the city’s vibrant “taco lifestyle”. Borrowing from, and riffing on the signage and cultural iconography of Los Angeles’ legendary taquerias, trucks, and Mexican restaurants. Restitution Press has created a parallel world where tacos inspire a brilliantly chromatic urban landscape. The images are recognizably Los Angeles, presented through the eyes of Restitution Press, with his trademark screen-print and paint process that creates both multi-layered abstraction and crisp, hand-painted lettering and detail.

A special limited-edition ‘zine will also accompany the exhibition.
