Collaboration Art of Marquez and Cunz
In 2008, at an outdoor art fair in Beverly Hills, California, Carlos Marquez introduced himself to Kris Cunz, a participating artist. Carlos enjoyed the environments Cunz made and asked if he could enhance them using his eye and skills as a graffiti guy. Cunz agreed.
In the past, Cunz developed a method of using pre-existing graffiti to create abstract murals. This utilitarian art form was best epitomized in the “Artist in the Community” grant in 1995 -96 with the City of Los Angeles. As the project closed, Cunz started to become more interested in the environments where graffiti existed than the results of his street work.
Cunz earlier work dealt with graffiti as an ever-changing tableau, which morphed over time through layering of tags, paint-outs, fading etc. For a time, Cunz continued to explore the results of abstracting graffiti into art compositions. His later work uses graffiti, and resulting abatement, as industrial or commercial areas change, and buildings change in their applied use – windows are bricked over, doors are moved, and the graffiti becomes part of a brick visual texture. The resulting images are a record of time, use, communication, and place.
Marquez having a history of vigilante art brought a legitimate street sense to Cunz’ environments. Having been part of the Los Angeles subculture from early on, Marquez was also able to bring others with an array of talents to participate on many projects Well know world wide Graffiti artist Cab One, Kopyeson and many other Graffiti artist that are still active in the underground world of Graffiti.
Today, the pair team up to work in several genres playing to the strength of their artistic vision.
