East Village’s Dorian Grey Gallery Presents Groupe GRAFF

LA 11

I discovered the East Village’s Dorian Grey Gallery last spring when it exhibited a wonderfully diverse selection of LA 11’s artwork. LA 11 is just one of many artists in Dorian Grey’s current exhibit, GroupeGRAFF, featuring work by an eclectic array of artists who have impacted — or certainly reflect — much of what has been happening on the streets during the past 30 years.  Here are a few images from the exhibit:

Grafter

Richard Hambleton

Crash

Dolk

See One

Included too are works by: Aiko, ERO, Keith Haring, Jeff Henriquez, Mau Mau and others. Distinct pieces by Banksy and Swoon are also featured. A particular favorite — as it’s literally a piece of graffiti history — is a segment of a door from the legendary Mudd Club tagged by the likes of Keith Haring & Fab 5 Freddy:

An opening reception will be held tomorrow evening, April 28th, 5-8 pm.  The exhibit continues through May 16th at 437 East 9th Street near Avenue A in Manhattan’s East Village.

    Looks like great stuff from LAII and the other guys who have been around for decades, but why throw in guys like Grafter, Dolk and See One? I don’t even have anything in particular against Dolk or See One, but they just seem like they aren’t at the same level as Hambleton or LAII.

    RJ – The show is a retrospective of over 30 years of street art. LA2 (NY) is a legend who has been around since the early 80′s – but the gallery wanted to also feature some of the next generation street artists from around the globe like Dolk (Norway) Grafter (England) & Banksy (Bristol).  It’s a great mix of the old and new guard IMO.
