Iskander Lemseffer, esteemed influencer and pioneer in the art world, is officially the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles’ newest member! As the mastermind and founder of LAB ART, the largest street art gallery in the world, Lemseffer has created an unstoppable movement.
|Growing up in Morocco, Lemseffer was exposed to unique styles in both the fashion and art worlds and was innately drawn to aesthetics. He moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in fashion and found immediate success as a designer. Having been an art aficionado and collector himself, Lemseffer would often showcase the works of his favorite street artists at his fashion shows in Downtown Los Angeles.|
When fashion show attendees passionately asked Lemseffer to buy his own curated collection of artwork right off the walls at his fashion shows, he sought out to open his own art gallery; a new kind of gallery, unlike anything in the Los Angeles art community called LAB ART.
This new concept took street art to the gallery setting, elevating the role of graffiti-based mastery into a whole new breed of contemporary art.
Instantly, LAB ART garnered a solid reputation as the hottest street art gallery known for its celebrity clientele, high-end contemporary artists and star-studded events. Since it’s opening in 2011, LAB ART has found success with an unprecedented, ever changing line up of approximately 300 works all curated under the watchful eye of Lemseffer, by various street artist, both recognized names as well as up-and-comers such as Alec Monopoly, Kai, Louis XXX, Annie Preece, MONCHO1929, TRUST.iCON and many more.
