Scarce Elementz is a nationally recognized mural and graffiti crew responsible for small and large scale murals throughout the U.S, including California, Denver, Chicago, Indiana, Arizona, New Mexico, and Iowa. The small circle of crew members hail from Arizona and California, along with the sole member from Iowa, known to Des Moines as ASPHATE.
Clientele includes the Phoenix Suns NBA franchise, the Nascar sanctioned Iowa Speedway, multiple DMPS schools, etc.
