Graffiti Art Show Slated for Mt. Hood Community College
Posted: Oct. 8, 2010
A collection of graffiti art will be exhibited through Oct. 29 at the Visual Arts Gallery located on the main campus of Mt. Hood Community College.
Doug Forrest, who is also known as Kar, is celebrating his twenty-fifth year as a Baltimore, Md., graffiti artist. His interest in graffiti began at an early age with his discovery of skateboarding, hip-hop music and movies such as "Beat Street" and "Wild Style." He creates graffiti art on canvases, cars, motorcycles, shoes and other objects. Like many graffiti artists, Forrest was inspired and influenced by the artwork of comic book artists.
The Visual Arts Gallery is located at 26000 SE Stark Street, Gresham, Ore., 97030. Hours are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., weekdays. Admission is free.
