"No Can Left Behind" show by Can Love at 941 Geary Preview… check out the show tonight!
June 16 - July 28, 2012
Canlove is an LA-based Graffiti Recycling Organization founded and managed by creative partners DJ Neff and Paul Ramirez. The non-profit kicked off over two years back, but the guiding inspiration had an earlier birth. Neff, a graffiti artist who started in the nineties describes the idea as part of a natural evolution of his interest in spray paint: “I wanted to understand the can better than anything - to make it do everything. There are too many cans everywhere to not use them,” says Ramirez, “Canlove is much bigger than a couple of people. We’re going to need a lot of help to bring our bigger vision to life.”
"No Can Left Behind" will be the first large scale installation of the artist collaborative. This show exemplifies the full process of graffiti itself, taking the tools that have enabled street art culture and allowing them to stand alone as new visual art.
