This year I had the pleasure of attending POWWOW Honolulu 2015. This event hosts over 100 artists from around the world to paint on the island. I had the task of painting with my good friend Kevin Ancell. Of course our wall was one of the largest. Kicked our ass, Here I am in paradise and I spent the entire time in a dirty alley, but I did enjoy myself. I want to thank RVCA, Jasper and the POWWOW Team as well as Casey from The Seventh Letter. These are just a few of the walls that went down.

Hey! I’m Back. ….
I am pleased to announce that saberone.com will be active again. I’ve been busy the last two years raising two little people. Now, I find myself in a good place to engage this platform again. Through the website I will be making available limited edition serigraph prints and original artwork. I will be periodically updating blog post and if I get off my ass, some writing. I believe in keeping my art accessible to the people we inspire. I have some interesting things lined up this year so stay tuned….
And thank you
Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Istanbul. I went to paint at the “Meeting Of All Stars” painting event. Thanks to Met, Leo, Hero, Cream, and rest rest of the homies for taking such good care of us. Everybody I met was warm and open to making new friends. We walked the streets quite a bit, pretty much writing on everything in site. It was a pleasure to walk these ancient streets and see the sites and smells. Check out these photos of what the streets and architecture look like. We also went to Pera Muzesi to see the current Street art show. Definitely was a trip to see Graffiti art culture thriving in this ancient metropolis……..
1xRun: Tell us a little bit about this piece, was this created solely for this print?
Saber: This was created just for the screen print, and it was inspired by a photograph that I took inside the banks of the Los Angeles river. I stumbled upon that particular image in the LA river and it was basically a representation of the post “War On Graffiti” era. So we’re dealing with the aftermath of the billions of dollars that have been spent on removing graffiti art. There is literally a billion dollar project that’s going down in the LA river. Basically everything is summed up with this photo in the sense that you have this buff that has been crumbled off of these old pieces and what’s left is this little glimpse of that piece of history.
