TIMEBOMB : 3 Decades of Style Writing Recap

The opening was nuts. Graffiti luminaries high and low, black books en masse. Once the gallery filled up, the streets filled up, both sides. Then the cops came and broke it up (luckily that was 10 minutes before closing anyway). A great show with a great turnout. Go HERE to see the full catalog, and go HERE to see some merch we are selling in relation to the show (tshirts, sticker packs and limited edition signed and numbered silkscreens from Easy and Skuf). 
The show is up through August, so come down and check it out. Gallery hours Tues-sat 1230-830, closed Mondays.

TIMEBOMB curated by Queen Andrea Opening July 25th

Hot on the heels of the Versus show is TIMEBOMB curated by Queen Andrea. An awesome line up that spans generations. 


From the press release "a rare graffiti exhibition featuring some of New York City's most famed and sought after graffiti artists, spanning the mid 1970's to the present day. On view will be original paintings and limited edition prints by Ces, Duel, Easy, Faust, Ket, Noah, Part, Pure, Queen Andrea, Skuf, Vfresh and Wane. The works on display represent each artist's individual mastery of letterform or legendary graffiti style. The show celebrates the roots of both hardcore vandalism and the fundamentals of more elaborate "piecing" style, fused with complex exporations of illustration, design and color. Each Timebomb artist is exhibiting new pieces from their growing bodies of work, unified by the theme of highly focused and expertly crafted graffiti art. Each artist exists in a league of their own, from Part's legendary and brilliant graffiti career that began in 1974, to Wane's vast and versatile knowledge of letters, to Faust's perfectly chiseled handstyle, to Ces’ imaccuately painted wildstyle art, Duel’s classic New York City bomber style, Easy’s iconic presence as a graffiti titan, Ket’s skillful stylized bombing, Noah’s intricate and highly detailed modern interpretation of stipple techniques, Pure’s unrivaled mastery of the legendary TFP crew style, Queen Andrea’s whimsical letter explorations using popular phrases and hip hop lyrics, Skuf’s tried and true mastery of bombing and Vfresh’s remarkable fusion of graffiti and dynamic conceptual illustration, Timebomb is a undeniable expose of some of graffiti's greatest and most innovative artists. Timebomb's curator, Andrea von Bujdoss AKA Queen Andrea, is a noted graphic designer, graffiti artist, native New Yorker and art curator with extensive knowledge of both graffiti style and urban culture."

Versus recap.. Awesome!

The opening of Versus was a great success. Despite the rain and heat, we had a full house of graffiti luminaries, as well as fans, and admirers. The work looked amazing, and the zines we brought sold out (we have more in stock at the gallery as of yesterday!). The work is up until the 2nd of July, so be sure to come down and check it out, and grab a zine. If you can't make it, the full catalog of the show is HERE, and you can get a zine shipped (while they last) HERE

Thanks to Cey and Erika Romualdo, as well as all of the artists for a great show.
