DESCRIPTION

New for 2012, Woodward Gallery invites Harlem-based street Artist Royce Bannon as their first-ever guest curator for an exhibition with rather unique art.

This exhibition will highlight a group of trendsetting artists who stand out in street and graffiti genres. The artists include: Cassius Fowler, Celso, Chris RWK, Cope2, Darkcloud, H.veng.Smith, Indie184, infinity, KA, Keely, Kenji Nakayama, Kosbe, Matt Siren, Moody, Nose Go, Royce B, Russell King, UR New York, Veng, and Wrona.

While how they each create differs, they are commonly driven to share art with their peers without-constraints. This public focus has afforded the group to experiment and redefine their creativity with instant feedback and inspiration from colleagues.

Bannon selected these few for their resolve and commitment. They have worked
obsessively over the years to get their public art recognized.

Each one of them has a rather unique style that I really can’t compare to any one else’s. If I mention a Darkcloud, a Matt Siren, or a Cope2 you know exactly what I’m talking about- even if you’re not into the scene- you can see their (iconic) images in your head… Everyone does wheat paste, and stickers, or (tag) throw ups, but this group of artists…make what they do really pop.

Woodward Gallery acknowledges these most contemporary of artists and their contribution to the new world of art.
