Graffiti  artist Raul “SPEW” Vasquez, one of Slanguage’s first, young artists that  worked at the studio, returns for his first solo exhibition, RESIDUE.   The show is comprised of thirteen ink-pen drawings made between  2007-2008 while the artist was incarcerated.  They are intricately  detailed and weave a wide array of designs and shapes taken from  calligraphy and gang-affiliated writing.  They show the artist coping  with solitude and isolation.  

 SLANGAIR (Artist in Residency)
This is the  first exhibition part of Slanguage’s residency program, SLANGAIR (Artist in Residency), which  annually invites two artists from California, including one from Los  Angeles, a national artist, and an international artist to the studio.   During their time at Slanguage, each artist builds a body of work to  show at the studio’s gallery space.
