After the incredible success of our 2010 exhibition, “Graffiti NYC”, Benrimon Contemporary is excited to announce that its first exhibition of 2012 will revisit the topic of urban street art with a focused group of work by emerging and established artists, to further explore public art and showcase the variety of styles, technique and creativity that has contributed to the ever-growing popularity of street art and graffiti in New York City and around the world. Influenced and inspired by their urban surroundings, the exhibiting artists use the streets as a platform to share their work, in addition to the political, social and personal forces that drive them to create. The work in this exhibition includes graffiti by Zezão and gallery installations by Greg LaMarche and UR New York; Each artist’s roots can be traced back to the traditions of graffiti, showing how this unique art form continues to evolve both on the street and in studio.
