TKU Karmablast Charity Art Show: Friday September 21; 7pm – 10pm
at Art Share LA – 801 East 4th Place Los Angeles, CA 90013
An exciting evening of art and music where The Karma Underground and KarmaBlast are holding a charity art show and auction to benefit the people of Tibet. The show is to help raise money to build an all girl school for nomades in Tibet and all of the proceeds from the night will be donated to KarmaBlast. Almost all of the artists involved with the projection hijacks (see below) will be participating in the event.
Samir Arghandwall of 7th Letter will be live painting and DJ sets by J. ROCC, TICK (Latch Brothers/Routines/Dragons), Kiino Villand and Special Guests. There will also be live screen-printing by Hit and Run. A limited edition print by Malleus (below) will be for sale to benefit the cause. There is a suggested donation of $10 at the door.
The Karma Underground is a dedicated group who support the people of Tibet and their goal of remaining a unique and unified culture – a culture that has been cultivating compassion for all beings for the last 1300 years. They assist with logistics and we raise money to fund projects that help the Tibetan people.

Projection Hijacks – Spring/Summer 2012
To help bring attention and support to our cause KarmaBlast has reached out to the LA-based street activist and artist, Lydiaemily, who started The Karma Underground. Karmablast and The Karma Underground will bring their communities together for a three-city tour of street art with images that invoke the political situation in Tibet. The art is projected onto buildings 100 feet high and 80 feet wide for all to see. This project was successful in Los Angeles, and in San Francisco and will take place in New York City later this year.
