Graffiti Writer RETNA talks about his life, his love, and his motivation to create art.

RETNA is a valiant and innovative unifier of culture. Through his uniquely curated alphabet of old english, hebrew, arab, asian and other calligraphy Retna has created his own universal text by which to translate his emotions, dreams, and poetry. He is also a kind and generous artist whose utmost goal is to share his work and put a smile on the face of those who enjoy and understand his dense rhythmic structures.
Retna, художник из Лос Анджелеса, известный своим фирменным стилем и частыми коллаборациями с ElMac, недавно выставлялся в одной из галерей Нью-Йорка. Процесс подготовки экспозиции был заснят на видео, и позже смонтирован в стильный ролик!

This LA-based street artist is currently on the road with his latest exhibition, the "Halleluja World Tour". Despite hints of Asian calligraphy, Incan and Egyptian hieroglyphics, Hebrew and Arabic script in his work, Retna likens himself more to a typographer rather than inventor of a new language. He talks to about his gang-inspired beginnings, his need to be unhappy and the job that he is here to do. Address: The Old Dairy, 7 Wakefield St, London, WC1N 1PB

This is the RETNA individual video for the "Art in the Streets" project. This project was a collaboration between Vanity Fair, Cadillac and MOCA. I was brought on to direct the short doc videos for each artist as well as a compilation video. This project stemmed from the MOCA museum exhibit. The idea was to take the art out of the museum and put it back on the streets. It was a stellar project with three amazing artists. I'm thrilled to have captured the process of each one. We used the following cams
