The Carlsbad Art Wall (CAW) project continues with its 3rd mural to be painted by Los Angeles street artist Annie Preece on Saturday June 27.

The east facing wall of Señor Grubby's located at 377 Carlsbad Village Dr. has become an urban canvas for each visiting Los Angeles street artist rotating every 1-2 months curated by Carlsbad based artist Bryan Snyder. Snyder hand picks each artist and is very excited to introduce you to Annie Preece.  

Annie Preece is an LA-based street artist, contemporary artist and muralist. She has exhibited successfully in San Francisco, New York, and Miami as part of the annual Art Basel festival. She has worked with high-profile clients such as Pabst Blue Ribbon, Red Bull, Metro LA, the X-Games, Hasbro, Polaroid, and Warner Bros Music, just to name a few. She has a clothing line by Prince Peter, is a winner of the Redbull Canvas Cooler competition, and has been featured in publications such as InStyle, LA Canvas, and Complex Magazine. In 2015, Annie was a featured artist on the first ever street art reality competition “Street Art Throwdown” on the Oxygen network.

Each artist is hand selected by Snyder, who was voted 'Los Angeles Street Artist of the Year' in 2012 by one of the nation's top street art websites Melrose and Fairfax. “I dedicated 3 years to the West Hollywood urban canvas of Melrose Avenue,” Snyder said. “In that time I met some very talented artists who all used the streets to showcase their skillful aesthetics and strong messages. To have the work of these artists in the Carlsbad Village is an amazing opportunity that will expose the Carlsbad community to an art scene that has already secured its place in art history.”

Along with the new art introduced into the Carlsbad Village, the community will be presented with the opportunity to learn from some the of the best street artists/muralists in the world. This urban art classroom will bring a new design, technique and creative process each month. After the initial series of Los Angeles artists, the Carlsbad Art Wall will be opened to all artists of all levels to practice and hone their developing skills. The goal of the Carlsbad Art Wall is to serve as a conduit between aspiring artists and professional artists, to provide a platform to engage and educate the Carlsbad community in the creative act of large scale public painting and to introduce a variety of new art and creative processes to the Carlsbad community.
