Retna is a local LA artist whos work I've kind of been following for the last few years. It seems like he's gotten a lot of really big commissions lately and is starting to get noticed big time. After chatting a little bit, turns out we went to the same highschool for a year, and his old studio was a few blocks from where I live, small world. I love it when guys who started off with graph really take it to the next level. I had seen a few of his pieces around town and one day while browsing at the local Art store, I noticed Retna and El Mac had put out a book, "Alianza". It's available on Amazon, but kinda pricey now :/

Here's a few shots from his solo exhibition at the Michael Kohn Gallery where I was lucky to run into him by chance. I hope one day we we can collaborate on something man!
