in the spring of 2018, we had the pleasure to fuse our vision with los angeles based artist & musician "low leaf". only 50- 10" playable artwork pieces were constructed. this project was our most extensive as of yet, but gratifying once completed. each record was intricately stenciled with a custom hand drawn design by angelica (low leaf), then carefully dipped with black & gold marble paint. each record has over two hours of groundwork put into it, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome.
low leaf then added the finishing touches by hand painting each record sleeve, and giving each one a unique look & feel.we consider these records as playable pieces of artwork, which inherited time, concentration, and a vast amount of energy.
you can purchase this one of a kind piece at www.creatordiy.com , and add it to your collection before it's long gone.
5x5 single sided picture discs were created for los angeles based artist "asal hazel" from her single "usayudo" -produced by the mastermind "mndsgn"
