SOUR GRAPES: Rest in Power
Rest In Power is presented by the graffiti writer collective Sourgrapes and is two major wall paintings at Dallas Contemporary; one on the interior and one on the exterior of the building. The production on the interior walls of Dallas Contemporary is a dedication to graffiti writers that have passed away and were a major influence on the artists. The homage to these fallen artists will show the impact they have had on the culture of street and urban-focused art. On the exterior of the building is a continuation of a project of the last several years by Sourgrapes. Four giant paletas (Mexican popsicles) painted as an on-going memorial to those involved in a series of killings and robberies of ice cream vendors in the community.
