"A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. It’s as though it had all just come into existence. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I’ve lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it’s meant to be."

This past Thursday The Loft Salon & Gallery presented the first in a monthly series of art shows to be held during the Downtown LA Artwalk. They teamed up with TSUS to curate a kick-off show featuring street art from SMEAR, LEBA and GREGORY SIFF, who are three of the most notable street artists in Los Angeles.
