Saber-Los Angeles Artist

Saber is a California-based graffiti artist born in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendale and went to school at Thousand Oaks High School. At 13, his cousins introduced him to graffiti when they took him to see the spray paint-covered Belmont Tunnel and from that moment on, he was hooked. After honing his skills on local walls, SABER joined MSK, and was later inducted into legendary piecing crew AWR. Saber is most famous for an exceptionally large piece he did on the concrete bank of the Los Angeles River in 1997. The work was viewable from satellite until late in 2009 when the city covered it with grey paint in an attempt to control vandalism. While painting graffiti is his main focus, SABER also explores other artistic talents like painting landscapes and creating metal and wood sculptures. He has also worked in design, taking jobs for Harley-Davidson and Levis, on movie sets and music videos, and was cused by Hyundai and Scion to airbrush cars. Check him out at his website SABER.
