Only at KAABOO Del Mar can you Skank along with a catchy melody from No Doubt while your eyes drink in a massive mural of tripped out pattern work from Jet Martinez, or sing along with The Killers while you wrap your mind around all of the brilliance of a 3 story tall monster painting from Tatiana Suarez. For 3 days Southern California hosts KAABOO, a masterfully curated all inclusive experience including a music festival, mural painting event & full tilt art show.
Amandalynn: I was presented with the opportunity to Art Direct the KAABOO experience in December 2014. After creating and installing a large scale canvas mural in the KAABOO headquarters in Denver, CO, the owner, Bryan Gordon, invited me out to have a drink. When I showed up to the bar there was a huge site plan map of the Del Mar Fairgrounds…and so it began!! I think I was not really aware of how massive it would become at the time, but I am overly grateful to Bryan and my design team for having faith in me, and trusting my artistic vision.
BB: What an amazing lineup! Tell me how you picked the artists for the show?
Was there any particular musician you were really excited to see perform or got the chance to meet?
BB: Is this an annual event, will there be a KAABOO next year?
