The film features renowned artists Shepard Fairey, Lee Quiñones, Swoon, Futura, Mister Cartoon, Revok, Martha Cooper, Invader to name a few. Director Alex Stapleton (Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel) documents the artist's creative process, their pitfalls with the law, the poetic impermanence of their craft and the artists' evolution from the back seat of a cop car to the walls of a well-respected institution.

              CATHARSIS CURATED BY MEDVIN SOBIO A tragedy, then, is the imitation of an action ... with incidents arousing pity and fear, wherewith to accomplish its catharsis of such emotions. - Aristotle Opening Saturday October 27, 2012, with a body of new work, New Image Art is pleased to present “Catharsis,” a new solo exhibition by Mexico City artist SANER, Curated by Medvin Sobio of 33third Los Angeles/Mid-City Arts. Catharsis in the Poetics of Aristotle is defined as an emotional, corporal, mental & spiritual purification. Through the experience of compassion and fear, the spectators of the tragedy experience a purgation of emotion, a purification of the soul, a reconfiguration of desires and passions; a new revolutionary formation of desire. Catharsis represents the final act in a cycle of solo exhibitions Saner has been developing, where each one has looked to generate an emotional change over the spectator, guiding the viewer towards a path of rebirth, freedom & purification. In this, the final act, the viewer is the element that gives life to the exhibition. Catharsis will be a space that will remain wrapped in a psycho magical act of healing. With an installation, performance piece, paintings, & works on paper; this collective act of creation, of encounter & confrontation is what will generate the liberation of the spectator. ABOUT SANER Edgar “Saner” Flores is an urban artist, muralist, professor, illustrator & graphic designer. Raised by his parents in Mexico City and surrounded by rich color and tradition, Saner developed an interest in drawing and Mexican Muralism early on. “I visited Oaxaca a lot when I was growing up because my mother is from there, and certain traditions which they carried out there really caught my attention.” He began expressing himself on paper and through graffiti art, later going on to earn a degree in graphic design from the Universidad Autonoma de Mexico. His lively & humorous images of masked characters on public walls, found objects and other canvases are influenced by Mexican custom and folklore, color, mysticism, masks, and skulls. A mix of these lifelong interests and passions has led him to become the artist he is today. “The masks that I use are traditional masks from Mexico.” The jaguars, coyotes, skulls, and other recurrent characters appear in my work because that parallel world is the real self, the real face. “ Saner’s work has been featured in galleries in Mexico, the United States, London, Berlin and Barcelona. Recent projects & exhibitions include “Kidnap Express,” Mid-City Arts Los Angeles, “Nose Job,” Eric Firestone Gallery East Hamptons NY, “The Bone yard Project,” Tucson Arizona, “The Bone yard: Return Trip,” Pima Space & Air Museum, “The Wynwood Walls,” Miami/Art Basel. He has collaborated with Kidrobot, Vans, G-Shock, HQTR Canada, Pineda Covalin, Persigna Store, Bacardi, Adidas Mexico, Televisa, and many others.

                      From the streets to the galleries, RISK has done it all... As an artist in the 1980s, RISK pushed the limits of graffiti and gained notoriety not only for his unique style, but for being one of the first writers in Southern California to paint freight trains and freeway overpasses. RISK was responsible for importing New York's Wild Style of graffiti to Los Angeles and combining it with his own aesthetic of lettering to create something entirely new. At the peak of his career he took graffiti from the streets into the galleries and recently played a major role in MOCA's groundbreaking Art in the Streets exhibition, which brought mainstream recognition to graffiti as a serious art medium. With a career spanning more than 30 years, RISK is continually evolving and pushing his personal limits as an artist. His story is a true testament that all artists must strive to break boundaries, and that anything can be accomplished if you are willing to take a risk.
