Branded Arts believes in the transformative power of art and the importance of arts education. They have been working with street art curator Warren Brand for the past year, chronicling the evolution of the Branded Arts complex in Culver City. With the participation of countless renowned artists from around the world, including Dabs Myla, Herakut, David Flores, Yoskay Yamamoto, Miss Van, Steven Daily, Shark Toof, Bumblebee, Meggs, Gaia, Surge, Cyrcle, Rime, and countless others, the complex has transformed from an anonymous, empty lot to one of the largest collections of murals in the world.

Local LA Artist Clinton Bopp from New Zealand is deeply inspired by people, their culture and the surroundings he experiences at any given time. Whether the energy of the city or nature around him, all of life’s heartbeat influences his art. Bopp (painter, muralist, stone/wood carver, sculptor, designer, jewelry & set designer, restorer and teacher) is committed to (through his art) revealing the profound inter-connectedness of people and the world around him. All of Bopp’s work is stamped with an eye to “the Street”. In his current work, he is examining what he calls ‘Global citizens’ -the celebration of our cultural differences, but through a lens revealing we are all a part of this one world. We are all human beings. His massive murals that can be found around La La Land are beyond impressive!

ABOUT BRANDED ARTS
Branded Arts curates art exhibition openings by featuring some of the most prolific artists of our time alongside never before seen work from some of LA’s rising stars. Branded Arts stages art-driven events that fuse visual art with music, fashion and entertainment, creating a platform that showcases emerging talent from around the world.
Over the last 4 years, Branded Arts has produced and curated several large-scale art exhibitions along with over 50 public mural projects around Los Angeles. Located at 8810 Washington Blvd. in Culver City, Branded Arts Building is the organization’s most renowned project, which has received extensive media coverage including a feature in the Los Angeles Times. Branded Arts recently completed a group of mural projects at THE RESERVE LA- a 20 acre creative campus in Playa Vista, home to the new offices of Microsoft and TMZ.
The company’s aim is to further involve renowned artists to paint murals at local properties, developments, youth centers, recreation centers, and schools. The goal is to send an inspirational message with art projects, give people a creative outlet, and to always display positive imagery. Due to public school budget cutbacks significantly impacting art programs around the country, Branded Arts feels it is up to independent organizations to help facilitate and introduce art to young people.
