The Sharpie Show

"An exhibition by artists who utilize marking pens as part of their craft"

 Opening Reception with Beats by DJ Phyz Ed and Live Printing by Two Rabbits:  
Saturday, February 7th, 2009 from 6pm - 9pm

In the Graffiti subculture, practitioners are known as "writers" because graffiti is about writing your name on as many surfaces as possible.  Although many writers elevate their art form to the level of creating huge and beautiful murals, they all began their journey as an artist by first learning to write and perfect their name.  The Sharpie marker is often the first tool a writer acquires in his lifelong journey to hone his craft and in becoming an artist.

The Sharpie Show, an exhibition curated by renown graffiti artist Man One, featuring original pieces created using Sharpies by some of the best known graffiti artists in the country (and beyond). Aside from graffiti artists, work by tattoo artists and known illustrators; Lalo Alcaraz and Overton Loyd will be on display. From stylized hand signatures, to throw ups, piecebooks, stickers, and any other possible object that can be marked upon, this exhibit will demonstrate the level of creativity that can be achieved between an artist and his/her most basic tool - The Sharpie.

 ***Exhibit runs thru March 1st, 2009***

 

Complete Artist Bios available upon request.
