Philip Lumbang X Abztract print for a cause

Removal of street-art mural spurs development of limited edition print as benefit for local arts nonprofit

As first reported by our friends at Public Ad Campaign, a mural painted by Philip Lumbang (a friend and featured artist of Abztract), was ordered by the Los Angeles Building & Safety Department to be removed due to a single complaint that was received from a local resident who thought the mural made the neighborhood "seem ghetto". The mural, in LA’s Silverlake neighborhood, has been a welcome scene for residents, nearby preschool students and staff, and random visitors who enjoy an occasional photo-op with the playful, woodsy animals painted on the mural along this pleasant Silverlake street.

Lumbang, a Silverlake-based street-artist, was commissioned by a local couple to paint a wall that wraps around their property nearly a year ago. However, the lone complaint to the LA’s Building & Safety Department has left the property owners facing removal of the mural by March 1 or paying a hefty fine. For a variety of reasons, the owners have chosen not to fight the city, and so the mural could be coming down. With help from local City Council Member Eric Garcetti, a fan of the mural, the owners and fans are hopeful that the mural can be saved before the March 1 deadline.

Lemons? Make lemonade:
Lumbang and Abztract have teamed up to release "The Mural" Limited Edition print and help the local community while doing so. This 18" x 24" three-color screen print was created by Lumbang, who used one of the most recent photos taken of the mural. The print is on 100lb archival paper and is an edition of only 100 prints total. A potion of the proceeds from the sales of this print will go to Room 13 Foshay, a Los Angeles nonprofit that provides mentoring and education programs to inner-city youth with a passion for arts.

Room 13 Foshay is part of the Light Bringer Project, a local arts and community-building nonprofit, and Room 13 International, an international multi-media studio that encourages and sponsors youth-created art in its 39 studios around the world. Lumbang and other local artists are active participants in the Los Angeles group’s activities.

How you can help:
Abztract has released "The Mural" limited edition print for pre-order as of TODAY. To get your limited edition screenprint, go to ABZTRACT.COM and place your order today at the online shop. Once the prints become available for shipping, we will notify you via email and send you further information. If you prefer to order by email, please contact us at

About the artist:
Lumbang, whose YouTube video painting this mural has had nearly 38,000 views, spent some time learning the ins and outs of street-art culture from Sherpard Fairey at Studio One. Since then, he has been painting his infamous "Awesome Bears." The Bears, along with their other furry, woodsy friends have taken the internet by storm as fast as he’s been able to get them up on the streets. Lumbang’s woodsy work has appeared in Arizona and San Francisco, and he’s also participated alongside Abztract and Public Ad Campaign during the NYSAT in the summer of 2009.

These images are from a 2 day mural painting done by Flying Fortress and Jose Jool at an underground car lot in Hammerbrooklyn/Hamburg. The paintings were done as part of the "tARTort Tiefgarage" event. These really make us wish all car lots were so visually exciting to be driving through.

London Graff Crew of the Year: ATG / DWS

Graff London holds an award of sort for the best of the best in the world of graffiti in the UK. It is voted by the people and while it does not have any actual prizes/awards given out, it is a way to have the followers of the art/graffiti scene in the UK really vote for who they feel have made strong impressions for 2009.
The awards is listed for some titles such as "Writer of the decade" and "Writer of the Year", but it was "Crew of the year" for 2009 that we were stoked on.

ATG, a graffiti/art crew from the UK got 2nd place (with DWS in 1st). ATG have been good pals of the Abztract family along with our good friends over at Rogue Status who have done a few collaboration with them. So we are really stoked to see they are getting big recognition for all they have done in the year of 2009.

So a big congrats to the entire ATG family.


Ernesto Yerena is an artist from Los Angeles. He has done collaborative work with the likes of Shepard Fairey and even our good pal Phil Lumbang.

This Thursday, Ernesto, who's art is influenced by Chicano / Mexican - American culture, will be dropping a brand new print titled "FIDEL"

The 3-color print will be available in two editions (50 each) and is measured at 22" X 31".

The print drops this Thursday, Feb. 4th at the Hecho Con Ganas website. Check this short video which features Ernesto working in his studio in Echo Park on New Year's Day on "Fidel".
