Our full recap of “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” can be seen over here, but above is an awesome video of Bezt and Natalia Rak creating a stunning new mural for the RAD Napa project.
The first mural in our curated series of work for RAD Napa is now complete, “Knocking on Heaven’s Door.” This gorgeous mural is from Bezt of Etam Cru and Natalia Rak. Their first collaborative mural together on the same wall, the two artists styles and voice worked well together creating a breathtaking new piece. The artists captured a unique glow that will ignite the imagination of those riding on the Napa wine trains. Despite a week of troublesome weather, we are beyond excited to see this piece have come to life and look forward to the RAD Napa multi-year project spanning dozens of walls.
Many thanks to all at RAD Napa, Montana Colors, and Spray Planet for their support of this special project.

Thinkspace curator Andrew Hosner headed out to Las Vegas last weekend to check out the murals at Life Is Beautiful. The mural element of the music and art festival was curated by our friends over at Just Kids and a few of the Thinkspace family were invited to participate. Bezt, Dulk, and Martin Whatson blessed the buildings of Las Vegas with colorful fun new pieces.
An art adventure for Hosner would not be complete without exploring some abandoned buildings. Here are some other stops on his Vegas adventure.
Also on view for the next two years, just outside Las Vegas ‘Seven Magic Mountains’ by Ugo Rondinone is a must see.
Etam Cru’s first exhibition in America was much anticipated; the gallery receiving requests and calls for information regarding the pieces in the show weeks in advance. Opening this past Saturday, December 12th, the doors to ‘Galimatias’ were delayed as the Thinkspace crew worked hard to wrap up the screen prints, including 10 hand embellished prints by Bezt dropped off only minutes before 6:00 pm.
Print collectors lined up outside hours ahead of doors with snacks and coffee in hand, who knew the art world would see its own form of tailgating. Before the end of the night not only was the show sold out, but so was the screen print ‘Final Frontier’ by Sainer, ‘Boy’s Dream’ by Bezt, and ‘The Backyard Gang’ giclees by Sainer.
The show is now on view till January 16, 2016; please check the Thinkspace Gallery website for holiday hours. Make sure to check out Etam Cru’s interview in January’s Juxtapoz available now and check back for shots of their fresh mural going up in Downtown LA with Branded Arts.
