The Sao Paulo sewer systems and subterranean water ducts become far more beautiful and exotic after Zezão rolls through. The artist’s trademark arabesque tagging letters called “pixacao” have roots in a Brazilian style and are extremely vibrant. If you’ve gotten the chance to see his alluring blue signature here in the city, specifically on Market Street, then you know for yourself his work is nothing short of electrifying. Check out his painting from our current Spring Catalog Show along with his piece on Market Street. “Flop on Metal Sign” by Zezão

Their work explores the meaning of authorship and originality in the context of the contemporary urban art and graffiti world.

Made in China is an exhibit laced with a collection of counterfeit pieces, fake replicas of other artists’ work but with a tongue-in-cheek twist. For their debut 1AM Gallery show, XEME and SINIC appropriated imagery and style from big names like Banksy, Haring, Fairey, Murakami, and Warhol, and inject their own flavor and humor. The collection ultimately calls
into question the nature of authorship and authenticity. The idea of ownership in the graffiti art world has always been sketchy, but XEME and SINIC’s work goes beyond the art world providing a social commentary on consumerism at large. Click “Read more” to see how they have revamped some of the most recognizable pieces out there. “The Social Study – 8″ by XEME (Banksy & BNE)
Legendary b-boy of the 80’s Rock Steady Crew, Doze Green has transitioned from one of the original NYC street car tagging artists to working on canvas, creating some very unique abstract narratives. Influenced by art of the Edo period in Japan, Green creates new work in his signature style of figurative abstraction and letter forms. He creates new worlds of fantasy in his figurative art work while maintaining a natural narrative and elements of the physics of time, calling them “biological entities – a swarm of arrows coming in from infinite perspective.” We’re stoked to have a variety of his prints for sale in the shop. Come check them out and snag one before they’re gone!
