Saber is most famous for the large piece he did on the concrete bank of the Los Angeles River in 1997.
The full color piece took 97 gallons of paint and 35 nights over the course of a year. The final work, measuring 250 x
55 feet has been called "the largest graffiti painting ever." The work was viewable from satellite. Highly visible from the East LA Interchange
near downtown Los Angeles, it was seen by millions of drivers. Saber can be
seen sitting in the letter B, and above the
concrete bank trains show the relative length. In 2007, the piece was included
in the KCET project Departures: LA River. Remarkable not only for sheer
size, Saber's LA River piece remained for 12 years. On September 1,
2009, a sub-contractor of the Army Corps of Engineers , BJD Resourcing, removed the work by painting over it.
American Flag Controversial Piece
Recently in 2010 Saber filmed a video of him painting the American
flag and painting on it. People said that he was desecrating the
American flag. Saber had many discussions with news networks such as Fox
News and MSNBC. As he was quoted on his website: "It was never my
intention to insult or disrespect anyone. The decision to paint the flag
was to show it as a living, breathing, changing organism, that
represents me as an American trying to manage this lifelong disease
(Epilepsy) without health care."
