Graffiti Battle Royal Estria

We have all known for graffiti to be a big part of the hip hop game. From New York, to Chi-town, Hawaii and Paris amongst the millions of other places filled with artists. One of the many known graffiti artists that Ladies Lotto has had the pleasure to work with this artist, Estria. This artist has had incredible year. With a total of 14 murals under is belt this past year, which that alone was astounding.

Estria also made sure to hit up a few graffiti battles as well.

And to wrap up his crazy year with a book release entitled "Mission Muralismo" which Estria is featured in.
Here is a small excerpt about Estria

"Birthed in the early 1970s, a provocative new street art scene transformed San Francisco’s legendary Mission District into an art epicenter that crosses popular culture, fine art and political audiences. “Mission Muralismo,” is an ever-growing movement of accomplished street art combining elements of Mexican mural painting, surrealism, pop art, urban punk, eco-warrior, cartoon, and guerilla graffiti that has catapulted many San Francisco artists into the international spotlight.

Featuring over 500 full-color photographs and 30 essays, including artists R. Crumb, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Barry McGee (TWIST), Rigo, and Spain Rodriguez, Street Art San Francisco comprehensively exposes more than three decades of this expansive and vibrant public art movement."
