Famed graffiti artist RETNA will be a main contributor to the Pasadena Museum of California Art graffiti series entitled "Street Cred: Graffiti Art from Concrete to Canvas" with a mural featured on the outside wall of the museum. You may remember RETNA from his Halleluja World Tour project in which he painted his graffiti art on a series of private jets. His graffiti and mural art has also been showcased on trains, walls and overpasses all over the city. At the core of his work are features of ancient hieroglyphics and calligraphy.

The museum artwork promises to be just as striking and beautiful. The exhibit will showcase Los Angeles' extensive variety of graffiti styles, highlighting graffiti as an art form as opposed to a stigmatized criminal activity.
