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

“Eviction” represents one painting from a large collection of SABER’s controversial flag series. Each original flag painting is a poetic exhibition of SABER’s activism toward the corruption of government and its activities. His ability to express a specific message through the medium of his fine art paintings is poignant. SABER has a natural ability to unify metaphor, visual symbolism, and the titles he gives his paintings that succinctly translates the zeitgeist streaming through our social media and machines of propaganda.“Eviction” was chosen as a commemorative giclee in recognition that art is both necessary as a mirror to our state of humanity, and a powerful medium that can bring awareness to social activism and responsibility and shift people’s perceptions. “Eviction” is offered as a one time Limited Edition, signed and numbered by SABER. This is the first digital reproduction of any of his flag paintings that is authorized for collecting. Ah!Giclee is the authorized printer for this giclee.Your “Eviction” Giclee will arrive in a custom portfolio designed by SaberOne.
“I want to give my viewers the opportunity to own a piece of my original art. The giclee format gives me the ability to make my paintings accessible. Eviction is one painting out of a large body of flags that I have painted. It represents how impermanent and ever-changing our world is”…….
This was inspired by the view at the SoHo House LA. Roughly took a hundred hours to complete. I love painting night-scapes. These really push my ability as a painter. I have a few more of these in mind.
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.
