About

ANGST has been drawing graffiti and street art of the letter A for 25 years.
His most recent work combines the letter A painted and cut from paper, with song lyrics written in complex and striking alphabets. Reflecting his grit, complexity and formal training at Art Center College of Design.

Born Rojelio Cabral and best known for the pervasive drawing of his bubble letter A on freeway center-columns throughout Southern California, he’s recognized for the way his A, character-like, played with scale, perspective and wall edges rather than merely stamped on the surface. He was among the first to combine West Coast gang writing with East Coast Hip Hop graffiti –a then unorthodox combination– and to work in sculptural graffiti, embedding letter A’s into the cityscape.

Rojelio has participated in many exhibitions, from the first LA museum show to include graffiti in 1994, “Urban Revisions: Current Projects for the Urban Realm” at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, to 2012’s “Street Cred: Graffiti Art from Concrete to Canvas” at the Pasadena Museum of California Art.
