Totally Radi-COL

COL’s work is so powerfully magnetic, it drew urban art curator Luna George all the way across the country to New York last year on a mission to see it in person. Mixing 3d styles and letter silhouettes, COL (Wallnuts, NYC) creates a wide graphical palette with color and movement that pushes and pulls with the strength of street graffiti and the sophistication of avant-garde pop. Using an open medium of acrylics, spray paints, oils, papers and found objects, COL’s works become emotional with an array of surface life; heavy strokes, negative space and strong drip work, with the application of various textures and environments.

Now, as Luna prepares to unveil one of her biggest curation projects yet (Hello World, April 20th at The Service Station), she brings COL’s work to LA, and we are so excited to share it with you. “Without a doubt,” Luna shares, “COL is one of the most talented urban painters out there. I believe in him big time, and I’m so excited to have him in the show.”

We hope COL’s grandmother, a painter and one of his biggest early influencers and supporters, is smiling to know how much her hijo has achieved in his creation. <3
