Represent, Represent! is to raise funds for artist Tony ï¿½Temptï¿½ Quan, who was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) in 2003, a disease characterized by progressive muscle weakness, ultimately resulting in paralysis. Tempt is from the old school era, an original graffiti writer pioneering since the early ï¿½80s who is known for his keen eye for simplicity, clean hand styles and is respected for his dedication to the graffiti movement. He, along with Relic, conceived one of LAï¿½s first graffiti magazines, Big Time. Hospitalized for 19 months, those who love and care for Tempt are filled with the hope that he can return home to the loving care of his family, which will undoubtedly lift his spirits and strengthen his will to continue this war against ALS. Due to the seriousness of this disease, he will need special medical attention, around the clock nursing and equipment to sustain him in a home environment. This event will draw artists, collectors, agents, publishers, taste-makers and other industry professionals alike. All proceeds from event will be donated to the Quan family.
