Larry Masters, more prominently known as Fuse, first discovered graffiti art in Los Angeles in the ‘80s, and helped form the AWR/MSK graffiti crew, one of the biggest in the world. In Colorado Springs, he collaborated with El Mac on the Springs’ “Graffiti Warehouse,” and contributed to an exhibit of graffiti art at the Fine Arts Center in 2015, proving that graffiti art can indeed be appreciated on the same level as fine art. Those of us used to seeing his large-scale pieces will enjoy his upcoming exhibit at The Machine Shop, where he’ll be showcasing graffiti glass and custom furniture — pieces that bring the excitement and color of street art into accessible (and functional) furnishings. Opening reception includes music by DJ Craftmatic, plus food from the Bison Brothers Food Truck.
