It's Alive 2 show Oct 19th: Mark Bode, Dr.Revolt and Stan 153!

Next fri Oct 19th 7-10 will Mark the return of the It's Alive show (It's Alive 2'). 

Mark Bode, Dr. Revolt, and Stan 153 will fill the gallery with new works. The first show was legendary. The show will also be the release party for a never published Miami Mice comic by Mark Bode (published by Urban Folk Art® Studios), as well as the release of the new Miami Mice puzzle from Tools of The Trade (ttotglobal.com). There will also be silkscreen prints signed by all the artists from the first show and new prints for the second show.

For immediate release:

Urban Folk Art® Studios and Brooklyn Tattoo® is proud to re- present the work of Mark Bode, Dr.Revolt, and Stan 153. The first ‘It’s Alive ‘ Show in March of 2010 was the 2nd gallery opening UFA studios presented, and has stood as the most well received. The show will include new works from Dr. Revolt, Mark Bode, Stan 153 and Jean 13.  Lets recap if anyone hasn’t been doing their graffiti history homework, Dr Revolt is one of the founding members of The Rolling Thunder Writers (RTW) and is infamous for taking over the 1 subway line with his signature graffiti  style (and creator of the ‘Yo MTV Raps’ logo). Stan 153, who got his start on the corner of 153rd Street and Eight Avenue defined the landscape of Harlem in the dawn of graffiti history, the 1970’s. He has been documented in The Faith of  Graffiti by Norman Mailer.. Mark Bode, son of the legendary comic book artist, Vaughn Bode, has developed a worldwide following for taking his family legacy and applying it to the comic and tattoo worlds, and has currently been showing art, painting murals (tributes to his own and his father’s notorious comic characters such as Cheech Wizard), and keeping his bloodline’s legacy alive worldwide. 

The show will be up through Nov 19th.
