Since the creation of prehistoric cave drawings, man has had the innate urge to leave his mark. Today those unique imprints can be anything from a simple "tag" on an overpass to an elaborate mural on a building. Now, at The Gallery at the Regional Arts Commission, seven local graffiti artists will leave their mark by creating a temporary installation of street art for the exhibition entitled Screwed In.

The artists Chris Burch, Stan Chisholm, David Langley, Chris Sabatino, Justin Tolentino, Bryan Walsh and Peat Wollaeger will collaborate on an installation and mural in The Gallery and show their individual work in RAC's studio space. They all have their own unique style but the passion for street art is what brings them together.

Wollaeger, for instance, began his career doing commercial art, creating designs for big name clients such as Coca Cola, Mars and Anheuser Busch. Burned out with the graphic art scene, he started using stencils and spray enamels to reproduce his illustrations, and has now garnered international acclaim for his whimsical, raw and brightly colored stenciled characters.

Tolentino, on the other hand, has been part of the hip-hop and graffiti scene since he was 15 years old. His ever-evolving work combines high art with street art, culminating into a style that has the raw feel and power of the underground.

Burch finds "there's something primal about making marks and what those marks signify." The artist combines hip-hop, pop and graffiti influences in his work. "There is purpose within the lines and colors. It becomes a voice for expressing the very thing that makes us human. We soon turn that passion into a tool to seek greater forms of truth."

Graffiti is now an accepted art form, displayed in galleries and even museums. Yet, with its unpolished qualities and aura of autonomy, street art remains a beloved rebel in the world of the visual arts.
