For Alec Monopoly's first solo show, LAB ART Gallery, which exclusively shows artwork by street artists, transformed its space into a larger than life experience of the Monopoly board game.

When discussing the references to Monopoly in Alec's artwork, LAB ART Gallery co-owner Iskander Lemseffer says it's easy to see how the game can represent real life situations.

"As you're going around the Monopoly board and you roll the dice, you never know what you are going to get," Lemfseffer said. "That is like life. You never know what you are going to get."
