Sen2 Manystyles: Beyond the Canvas!

As many aspiring streetwear designers have done before him, Sen2 made his first move into apparel design by customizing sneakers but this interest has undeniably transformed into something much greater as he established his own clothing brand, Dirty Waters, in 2011. Simultaneously integrating Americana and street art into its aesthetic, the brand makes one thing clear from the start: it represents NYC. Sen2 also cites those who have fought to make a difference as inspiration for his brand’s designs, evidenced by his use of Native American imagery. Sen2′s 1AM Gallery show, “A Declaration of Color,” opens THIS Thursday, 6:30-9:30PM! Meet the artist, grab some drinks, and check out some legit graff art fresh from New York City!

Electric Blue Style from Zezão

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 Zezao“Flop on Metal Sign” by Zezão

The Legendary MadC

Original art work by the living legend MadC is currently on display at 1AM Gallery for our Spring Catalog Show. As most of you know, MadC is a BEAST of a painter! - an internationally renowned artist from Germany, who has worked in over 35 different counties across the globe. Known for her 700 wall – a 700 sq meter wall that is most likely the largest graffiti mural created by a single person, finished in about four months time. Check out one of the works we currently have on display as well as an in progress shot of MadC at work on a 550 sq meter wall in Leipzig, Germany, which she painted solo in just 7 days!

The Ubiquitous EKG

EKG is an anonymous graffiti writer whose iconic symbol is ubiquitous throughout NYC. His unique emblem: a short, bright “safety” orange electrocardiogram pulse runs across walls, trucks, and mailboxes throughout the five boroughs, and on to other cities around the world. His overwhelming enigmatic presence throughout NYC has recently caught the attention of gallery curators and street art bloggers. A graffiti writer and essayist, he has had his work and writings featured by Vandalog, Artslant Street, and Graffuturism and was included in “Complex’s 15 Street Artist’s To Watch in 2014” list. Check out some of his work in our Spring Catalog Show!
