About this Art

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 Inch Black Wood Frame with UV-Glass, Foam Core Backing and Ready to Hang Hardware.


"The idea for this piece came about very spontaneously - I was working on the text, which runs up and down and across the piece, and I knew I wanted to do some powerful imagery in the center, so I just followed my instinct and the rest is history. What is unique about this piece is that it is a piece that is has both typography and abstract imagery. The lettering style is very unique in that it is a hybrid form of writing, which is covered with washes of paint, then in the center there is a abstract burst of energy, comprised of random gestural brush strokes. The piece that it is derived from is a piece that I hold dear, it is a very personal piece that represents overcoming adversity and summoning up that inner strength that pushes us to move forward." - Defer

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
