Klughaus x The Seventh Letter Trucks in Miami for Art Basel 2012

Klughaus Gallery was in Miami for Art Basel showcasing some of the top graffiti artists on our fleet of Klughaus trucks.  The artists who were a part of this project included: RIME MSK, TOPER, OBLVN, GOREY, DCEVE SMART, VOR DBI, STAE2, ALOY MSK, KAPUT VTS, LARGE VTS, ANTHONY LISTER, WITNES/TYKE, GREVE and last but not least an OIL (RIP) tribute by JUNE, DZEE and friends.  Throughout the event, live music was provided by MR. GREEN and MECA on the drums on top of the trucks!

The concept of this Klughaus project was to showcase the true nature of “graffiti.”  Graffiti writers dedicate a lot of time and effort into their work while not expecting any monetary rewards.   There is also no guarantee how long the work will last (sometimes gone within hours.)   With the forced cycles of graffiti in this project, every one of the artists painted with the mindset that their artwork would be gone within 24 hours (and running less time the longer it took them to paint.)  This forced a “purist” mentality upon the artists but it did not stop any of the artists from producing top-notch quality work!

The mobile nature of these trucks allowed us to bring the artwork to life while rolling down the main streets of Wynwood and then over to Miami Beach (where most of the artwork was contained inside of galleries.) This “Out-of-the-box-truck” approach definitely turned heads when we paraded down NW 2nd Street in Wynwood Saturday night (Teen Wolf style) with drummers & a bunch of people on top of a freshly painted truck by RIME & TOPER.  Miami police eventually shut us down but it was fun while it lasted!  Stay tuned for a video of the project but  in the mean time, check out some of the photos below:
