PAINTING DESCRIPTION:

SABER’s ”Color of Music Series” of Limited Edition Paintings is comprised of 14 original paintings was specifically created for the launch of the new SABERONE website. Each painting is a blast of color representing his newest, vibrant expression of visual storytelling. SABER’s signature style of intricately controlled layering of forms, painting techniques and symbolism tells a story of two opposing forces, a staccato of buffed dead beige and gray in contrast to the colorful rhythm of saturated colors. SABER’s command of his craft and ability to spontaneously give birth to the creative impulse is a mark of a true master of graffiti art.

ARTISTS STATEMENT:

“To me, color is like music. Each hue and tone rings a certain vibration. It is alive with feeling. I began to feel a deep lack of vibrancy when our cities landscapes turned beige and gray silencing the colorful rhythm and symphonies of murals and art that is buffed-out everyday by city officials. These large-scale original paintings are windows in to the present moment in which the world is a dance of two opposing forces, a staccato of uninspired dead beige and gray in contrast to the vivid and alive “Color Of Music”.

“Colores Para Siempre” Serigraph and Interview

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.
