ATL Is Going Coastal

By Rich Lindeman

On May 7, inspired by the lifelong journey and vision of East Atlanta Village’s (EAV) newest art duo, CostaLeko, Rich Lindeman and Ryan Rumpel will transport you into their minds and onto the shores of this new art movement.

They provide a unique twist and combination of styles ranging from the walls of Venice Beach to the tunnels and galleries of Atlanta. Inspired by love, life, salt air, and city living you will experience what it might be to combine Outkast and the Red Hot Chili Peppers on a canvas.

The event will be held in the heart of the Village, at 471-A Flat Shoals Avenue, from 5:00-10:00pm. Come dressed to express and be yourself. The show, “This Way to Free,” will showcase the duos unique and vibrant collection of pieces ranging from acrylic and spray on canvas to unique large format papers and clothing. If it will hold paint, they’ll tag it. Built layer upon layer, you will get the chance to stand and stare into the multiple levels their art creates. There won’t be a shortage of palm trees and on looking eyes.

With the doors open, Mel’s BBQ smoking, and the music pumping, this free event is the place you’ll want to be on a Saturday night. Bring the family, or make it a date night, just be sure to come have fun. Stay Palm and good vibes to all.
