Los Angeles, CA -- Walking Back To Houston continues Scion's celebration of cutting edge art. The show, curated by Union, features three diverse artists, CLOS, ROB ABEYTA JR and ZY$. Uniquely, only one of the three, Rob Abeyta Jr. has an already established reputation in the traditional art world. He has done graphic design, as well as art directing and design for the likes of NIKE, STUSSY, NEIGHBORHOOD, UNDEFEATED, ADIDAS and numerous music packaging designs ranging from the seminal punk band LOS CRUDOS, to The Transplants, to LA hip hop legends MACK 10, Cypress Hill and DJ Quick.

Carlitos (CLOS) has previously been best known for his work as a tattoo artist, notably as Mr. Cartoon's apprentice, while ZY$ is an underground Tokyo graffiti artist. Walking Back To Houston brings together these artists to present their talents in a new light and setting.

The distinctive name of the show is derived from a Texas no-limit poker hand, the Ace-King. This is usually considered to be a great hand, but if you still end up losing, that's called "walking back to Houston." The curators decided the catchy, but mysterious phrase would fit the concept of the show.

The opening reception takes place May 12th, 7pm-10pm at the Scion Installation LA Gallery, 3521 Helms Ave. (at National), Culver City, CA 90232. The show will remain up through June 2nd.
