About Open Canvas: The future is yours to create

From Warhol to Jay-Z, ABSOLUT vodka has a rich heritage of collaborating with inspirational artists and is now evolving the spirit of creation for the next creative generation - inspiring others to pick up their own paintbrush or pencil or plywood and experience the power of creative transformation. With the ABSOLUT Open Canvas initiative, ABSOLUT empowers an extraordinary group of contemporary artists to transform an unlikely setting – the street & structure of a normal city block- into an interactive outdoor art exhibition. A reminder that we can all transform our present and future if we adapt a daring spirit and use creativity to stretch everyday reality from the mundane to the extraordinary - TRANSFORM TODAY.

About Lights Down Low:

Lights Down Low is a fixture in the Bay Area nightlife scene, bringing some of the most forward thinking music events to San Francisco and Los Ageles over the last 5 years. In 2013, Lights Down Low has kicked things up a notch with acts like Simian Mobile Disco, Skream, Eqyptrixx coming to SF in the next few weeks. We're stoked to bring the LDL residents back to the Bay Area from their new homes in Los Angeles.

About Victor Reyes:

Painting has been a constant study in the life of Victor Reyes. From Graffitti in cities worldwide to large scale murals, he has worked within the medium of painting for 20 years. Drive through the Mission or SOMA and you will see his artwork everywhere.
