I got to link up with my good friend THEN ONE a couple of weeks ago to catch up and kick it and this lead to a session. I cant lie its been a minute as I've been laying low and building towards new goals and opportunities, but when Thenski came into town we both kind of knew this had to happen.
That being said... shout out to THEN ONE for coming through and blessing the Yard Work wall with that crispy style and for always being a solid dude. Also major shout out as always to our supporters ART PRIMO Much love and respect. -Serringe

Element Tree Presents: SoundSoil Episode:2 TAKT x GRAND KEMIST


Peace and respect to the homies TAKT x GRAND KEMIST for allowing me in their dojo to shoot this SoundSoil episode. These two goons roll with the (Sessions At The PM) squad which have been releasing some underground gems for quite sometime now. If you aren't up on them hit your local vinyl diggery and you're more than likely going to run into them. Their project is called "Tantas Cosas." Don't expect to fined the same covers though... you'll see. Enjoy! -Serkse

Element Tree Presents: The Bernie Sanders Mural (Bronx, New York)



Sup Ya'll. This video should have dropped a while back but unfortunately I wasn't able to really get behind it and promote it as my life was going through a bit of a roller coaster at the time. Regardless the artists went all out and it deserves to be seen. That being said..... press play. Also shout out to all the artists involved, shouts to Ket for reaching out and much love and respect to Bernie Sanders its a shame America is so corrupt and dishonest. Salute! -Serringe

Interview: California Dreaming with BATES

ET: First off… thank for your time. I can only imagine at the moment you're in your last stretch and ready to just enjoy the fruits of your hard work, so I'll make this quick.

ET: What was the spark that set you off to begin your journey as BATES?

BATES: I HAD A FEW NAMES BEFORE I STARTED TO WRITE BATES IN 1986.  WHEN I FIRST TRAVELED TO SWEDEN THEN SPAIN IN 1987, SEEING OTHER STYLES AND SCENES, YOU WANTED TO BOMB, GET UP AND START MAKING A NAME FOR YOURSELF

ET: At what point in time did you decide that this was going to become something you would focus on and turn into a career?

BATES: WAY TOO LATE, I JUST LOVED TO TRAVEL AND WRITE MY NAME. MY PASSION IS I LIKE TO BE CREATIVE. PEOPLE SAID I SHOULD TRY TO MAKE IT MY CAREER.  MY MOTHER WANTED ME TO MAKE MY STUFF ON CANVAS AND HAVE SUCCESS. I FEEL LIKE I OWE HER TO TRY AND THAT'S WHAT I DO NOW!
ET: Was there ever a moment where you realized that you were making the right moves and your art career started to become a reality?

BATES: YES, SOME OF THE FIRST SALES MADE ME REALIZE PEOPLE APPRECIATED AND LOVED WHAT I DID.  ALSO SEEING MY FIRST SOLD CANVAS FROM 1987 REALLY MADE ME THINK THAT I NEEDED TO PUT MY ARTWORK ON CANVAS BUT I DO FEEL NEW IN THE ART WORLD. HAVING A NAME IN THE UNDERGROUND DOESN'T MEAN MUCH IN GALLERIES.

ET: I've noticed your fine arts are completely based and rooted in solid and classic graffiti. What can you tell us about your approach to fine arts?

BATES: I NEVER TOOK A DRAWING LESSON OR HAD ANY ART EDUCATION. I LEARNED FROM PAINTING WITH OTHER WRITERS AROUND THE WORLD. I BELIEVE IN MY ART FORM AND I WANT TO DO THE SAME THING I'VE KNOWN IN THE STREETS, ONLY THING THAT HAS CHANGED IS THE MEDIUM AND SURFACE.

ET: Lets talk "California Dreaming" and your first U.S. gallery exhibition.  How did this come about and what can people expect?

BATES: I CAN THANK RISK WC MSK FOR BELIEVING IN ME AND GIVING ME THE OPPORTUNITIES TO SHOWCASE WHATEVER I WANTED.  I BASICALLY HAVE FREE HANDS! RISK IS PART OWNER OF BUCKSHOT GALLERY, AND I'VE KNOWN HIM SINCE 1989, SO THAT'S HOW IT WENT ABOUT.  PEOPLE CAN EXPECT SOME CLASSIC THINGS, EXPERIMENTS AND A NEW DIRECTION OF NEW 2016 ARTWORK ON DISPLAY IN SANTA MONICA, LOS ANGELES, AND BUCKSHOT GALLERY AT PICO BLVD.


ET: What's next for the Great Bates?

BATES: GET MORE INTO FINE LIMITED PRINTS, MORE SHOWS AND TRAVEL

ET: If there was a moment where the entire graffiti culture was listening… what would you say? I ask this question all the time.  Do you have any wise words to a younger generation of writers?

BATES: KNOW YOUR CRAFT. LEARN THE HISTORY AND STUDY THE STYLE MASTERS FROM NYC, MAYBE GET AN OLDER MENTOR WHO CAN SCHOOL YOU.
 
ET: Thank you for your time and best of luck with California Dreaming.  The show pops off tonight so if you're out in Santa Monica... you now officially have something to do tonight. Enjoy.

ELEMENT TREE Presents: IMOK Crew


Shout out to the good homies from IMOK Crew for allowing me to shoot and document this event of complete butteriness. The results were some classic styles from Sekt, Jick and Risk9, an awesome and artistic visual middle finger for the scumbag we all know as Donald Trump and an awesome CBGB inspired burner. To say the least we had some good laughs and the homies burned it down.
Much love and respect. -Serringe

Video: FECKS - No Stress


Whattagwahn? Been a minute since I put some visual grub in your brains so as the weather clears up... here I come! Check out this super fresh Ironlak video featuring FECKS squashin em with the funky styles. Dope music and some guest goons for that extra video flare. Enjoy and expect more buttas on the way! Salute. Peace and Respect -Serringe

GANE x TEXAS




When it comes to rollers with style... Gane and Texas have it on lock. Though since they came out swinging many have tried to produce comparable work but these two hold it down. They continue to paint some primetime spots and the scale of work just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Here are a few flicks in case you aren't familiar but I'm sure if you drove by one of these you would notice. Much respect to Gane and Texas. Salute. -Serringe
