Konsept, the local art collective that have kept a lasting influence over downtown SanTana's nightlife art scene, have come a long way from just being a rap duo shooting videos of their good deeds. Growing in size from two to nearly twenty members of artists, musicians, videographers, designers, and photographers, Konsept has overseen the growth of the city's artistic vitality and adapted with it, even helping to shape its current state of prosperity.
Tyson Pruong, leader and main voice of Konsept, is always quick to redirect praise and honors to the other members, whom he says are the real talents deserving of recognition. But one thing Pruong can readily admit for sure is that this has been Konsept's best year ever. With the trust of local gallery owners, bar owners and other artists, Pruong's been able to curate a series of art-slash-music showcases to bring his talented friends more time to shine in the spotlight with the "Konsept Presents" brand name front and center.
This Saturday during downtown art walk, Konsept will be hosting the biggest event it's ever produced. Not only will there be artists displays and a beefed-up music showcase, but also a chance to paint all over the walls of the venue space- just bring your own paint, guys.
