Today, Cetina continues to produce work that represents today’s Los Angeles street art and hip-hop scene.
The LAAC is a collective of emerging artists that represent the intricacy and diversity of the Los Angeles culture. Like the freeways that make the terrain of LA, their concepts are driven from their experiences in the urbanization of the city of angels. Together, their distinct voices echo the diversified communities and multifarious architecture.
Our mission is to create large-scale collaborations blurring the boundaries of artist, community, space, medium, and identity. From live mural painting to video projection mapping, these contrasting artists have one mutual theme: their relationship to this massive city.
