Marcos LaFarga’s Solo Exhibit Opens at Oakland’s Sticks + Stones Gallery

At first glance, Marcos LaFarga’s artwork doesn’t make you think of graffiti. But looking more closely, there are similarities. In his pieces, explosive, bold lettering spells out humoristic slogans like “Design is Dead,” “Misguided” and “Wisdom is Gold,” which are often coupled with realistic drawings that complement the words.

“In graffiti, there’s the word and then people do a character on the side,” LaFarga says. “Letters are rigid with clean lines, whereas the object has a lot of value and depth that is formed. It’s a contrast, it’s like the organic and the mechanical.”
