Factory Fresh and Mighty Tanaka present: 2012, June 5 – June 21
Factory Fresh 1053 Flushing Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11237
The notorious AVOID, BLOKE, and FARO converge at Factory Fresh, bringing with them an assorted collection of unique styles that exemplify the next generation of NYC street art and graffiti. The three artists, known on the streets for their massive tags, culturally inspired graffiti, and paper airplanes and airships have already captured the attention of many in New York City.
On June 5th they will exhibit their work collaboratively for the first time. The exhibition is based on the year 2012, which marks the end of the Mayan calendar; a year that is generally associated with apprehension, apocalypse, and climate meltdown. The current economic crisis and continuing global warfare have produced an artistic shift on the streets of New York City. AVOID, BLOKE and FARO signify a changing of the guard in graffiti and street art.
AVOID, BLOKE, and FARO are constant contributors to the painted interpretation of the urban environment. Each artist has developed a text-based style as well as an iconic imagery that have become ubiquitous within our daily lives. By blending their ideals and styles, they have created a symbolized view of the streets that transcends one world and ushers in another. As we approach this time of great change, the 2012 show places the viewer in the middle of the transformation, setting about on an adventure through a shifting paradigm of the world. It seeks to enlighten and project the change that is constantly around us with the progression of both society and art.
