About Saber

SaberRaised in Glendale with encouraging parents allowing him to express his creativity,Saber discovered a passion for art at an early age. Seeing the graffiti art of theBelmont Tunnel one day with his cousins sparked in him a desire to become an artist. His interest in the work he saw was perhaps a foreshadowing to the artwork he would complete in 1997 on the Los Angeles River. The work took him 35 nights and 97 gallons of paint to complete, and is the world’s largest graffiti piece. Saber was only 21 when he completed the work. The football field sized mural is visible to anyone driving the East LA Interchange.

Many artists have been influenced by Saber’s passion for graffiti art and activism on behalf of it. He helped bring public awareness to graffiti as a true art form. Additionally, he informed the public as the dangerous aspect of making graffiti art, as artists do not use safety nets while creating.

Saber’s career is synonymous with his political and social activism. Furious about the US healthcare system in 2010, Saber poured his energy in a project to spark social reform. In effort to reflect his view of an unjust system, the artist released a video of himself painting graffiti over the American flag. Needless to say, controversy rapidly ensued. Fox News and the political right met his video with criticism.

In 2011, after the implementation of a new law censoring public murals and cuts to the arts, Saber pushed back against the system yet again, commissioning light aircraft slogans across LA and New York.

His career led him to working on solo projects, later joining MSK, and then legendary graffiti crew AWR. He went on to partner with corporations like Hyundai, Scion and Montana Paint Company. The Washington Post noted Saber as “one of the best and most respected artists” in his field. He is certainly one of the most sensational.
