Saint Paint Arts to present ‘Letter Headz’

PINELLAS PARK — “Letter Headz,” a graffiti art show, will be presented Friday and Saturday, Sept. 22-23, 6 to 11 p.m., at Saint Paint Arts, 5705 Park Blvd., Pinellas Park

This two-day event will feature live painting, vendors, music, and more. This is a free, all-ages, family- and pet-friendly event.

Tasko brings the explosive energy of street art from across the globe to one location. This exhibition features an array of voices from artists around the world that will showcase the “Alphabet” movement from over 50 graffiti artists covering a range of different styles that represent the graffiti culture, but told in their own unique way of “hand styles” and “letters.”

Graffiti art traces its origins back to the ’70s urban graffiti of New York City’s outer boroughs and from there this culture spread to urban cities around the world. Street art is the product of disenfranchised youths who illegally spray-painted their “tags” or “handles” in visible public spaces and on subway trains. It then developed into a phenomenon with its own set of rules and followers.
