Gallery 2 Copro presents becca &\; Philip Lu mbang. For this exhibition there will be paintings by becca and Ph ilip as well as colloboration pieces done by both artists. Since the late 8 0's artist becca has been taking her work to the street an d helping to pioneer a phenomena in Los Angeles know as “street art”. Her v ision in seeing the potential of our urban landscapes as a endless canvas p layed an integral role in accelerating a movement that would change art and how artists express themselves. beccas' paintings on wood have a look like they have been taken from the street much like her work used to sell in th e begining from paintings procured from construction sites or boarded up bu ildings in Los Angeles. Since the 80's she has done many fine art exhibitio ns with major galleries and continues to represent the feminine side to a m ostly masculine dominated art form. 

Philip Lumbang's greatest passion is drawing and painting. Doing the only thing that seemed natural to him\, he pursued his artistic talent and went to art scho ol. By divine entanglement\, he was offered a seat next to Sheperd Fairey\, at Studio Number One. There\, immersed in a world where an artist is not a trouble maker\, but a respected professional\, he realized he could be one too. Los Angeles was a world apart from his humble suburban home back in E lk Grove\, California. When he would draw he would channel all the noise\, traffic\, bad habits and negativity that the city was boiling over with. Hi s bears first emerged as gaspingly rude mammals. But the bears transformed as Philip did. As a counter attack to the world's problems they went to art istic reform school\, rather – charm school. They appeared all over Los Ang eles as courteous and well mannered cuddly creatures. Now\, as a most wise people\, Philip Lumbang's message through the bears is to love each other a nd the bears do it quite nicely!
