Few more days @beyondthestreetsart if you are in LA come through, LA Weekly Article by @trinaluz >> Just one of the 150 artists in the knockout "Beyond the Streets" installation taking over downtown this summer, AIKO has a unique story to tell about finding success as a woman of color in the street-art world. It’s a sexy story too, full of action and adventure.
Sultry red lighting reveals figures of stenciled women, in poses of ecstasy, painted on the walls with spray cans. In a city street scene, a sex shop stands out from the shadows; and inside the massive warehouse art exhibition "Beyond the Streets," the installation created by Japanese street artist AIKO is just as provocative.
Her super hot fantasy room is tucked around a corner of the exhibit; you could miss it if you don’t see the steps that lead up into the strip-club, disco-ball haze. Featuring wall-to-wall paintings of AIKO’s graphic naked women in the throes of racy sexual moments, a stripper pole invites you to take a ride of your own, and stenciled texts promise “Thrilling Experiences” and “Here’s Fun for Everyone!”
