1AM Gallery is pleased to pres ent\, &ldquo\; CMYK &rdquo\;\, showcasing brand new works by graffiti artists RPES\, PEMEX\, and AMUSE 126. The demand for colors in today&rsquo\;s art market is substantial\, with shades ranging infinitely a long the color wheel. CMYK aims to contrast this freedom of colors and expe riment with simplified styles and techniques. CMYK was selected among the m any color options because it is a universal color pallet. For this exhibit\ , each artist will create one piece where they use only a single color. Thi s simplification will not only reflect the relationship each person has wit h that one color\, but it will also showcase their unique artistic style. I f anything\, CMYK emphasizes that colors are not solely accessories for art \, but fundamental building blocks to promote an artist&rsquo\;s message.\n

RPES was born in the south of France i n 1987. He along with four of his friends discovered graffiti in the early 2000's whilst visiting the city of Toulouse\, France. Captivated by the let ters and the art&rsquo\;s forbidden aspects\, himself and the others decide d to join this culture of Graffiti. In 2004\, DSEK\, IWOK\, BAR\, SHREK and RPES started the PMB crew. Nearly a decade later the PMB crew has delighte d us with their profound specialty and has left their mark throughout Europ e and two other continents. Eventually\, RPES wanted to travel beyond Europ e and landed in the Bay Area. He fell in love with the city and decided to stay. For the past 3 years\, RPES lives\, works and paints in the Bay   \;Area and a few other cities in the US. He is also the co-­\;founder of the clothing line "BROY". His style has matured within the last 5 years as he has become more serious with his work and refined his graffiti style.\n

In the world of graffiti and massive u rban murals\, PEMEX is a hard name to overlook. He's paid plenty of dues ge tting his hands dirty and raised through the ranks to be one of the most re nowned graffiti artists putting up work all throughout California and abroa d. It wasn't an easy road getting there. Born and raised in South Central L os Angeles\, it would have been easy to fall victim to the environment that raised him\, to follow the same disastrous path that so many others did. B ut PEMEX is no ordinary person. He was able to do what few other were\, to process his experience and channel it to grow strong and resilient\, self-& shy\;capable and fearless. His street work is savage and unrelenting\, styl ish and possessing in it a humor and history unique to the artist himself.< /p>\n

With over 15 years of consistent work \, marked by vicious determination\, self-­\;taught graffiti artist AMUS E 126 has clearly proven to the world that his efforts are nothing less tha n extraordinary. Longevity is key in an art where nothing is permanent\, no r widely accepted. AMUSE 126\, a Chicago native\, lures an unaware audience into a new dimension of abstract typography and illustrative design. With the mindset to never settle for less than perfection\, this is one artist t hat has yet to unveil what remarkable visions circulate deep within the hum an psyche. \;
