Defer
Los Angeles, California
Iconic street artist, DEFER, amalgamates the urban landscape and the realm of fine art. Alex Kizu, aka DEFER, transcends his youth in Boyle Heights to share the influences of true street art within his own murals, canvases and prints.

As a pioneer member of the first generation of LA Graffiti crews, K2S, STN and KGB, Kizu’s influence on the Los Angeles graffiti movement is profound. Edified by early New York graffiti, and more importantly, the neighborhood “placaso” style, indigenous to LA; Defer culminates these experiences to define a unique native genre.

DEFER’s typographic work is viewed as lyrical and beautiful. Also known as a handstyle, this specific expression speaks to the credibility of the original graffiti crews in Los Angeles and now bridges to a larger audience. Currently Defer creates paintings that incorporate Japanese images with his handstyle resulting in exquisite art. - Brandy Shea Sweeney
