    New York, Opera Gallery, The American Graffiti Artist, 2011

    As a native of Los Angeles, Saber's passion for art emerged at an early age. His involvement in graffiti began at 13, when his cousins took him to see the spray-painted murals of the Belmont Tunnel, and since then he has never looked back. In 1997, Saber produced a work which has been recognised as the largest piece of street art ever created; at nearly the size of a professional football field, his spray paint work on the sloping concrete banks of the Los Angeles River was unprecedented in its scale, and not surprisingly it was the work which was to turn the artist into a graffiti legend. Saber began to produce gallery works in 2002, and since then has exhibited across the USA, his work now often taking a strong political stance as well as creating a powerful visual impact.
