Next Friday in Copenhagen, V1 Gallery will be opening a two-person show with Lydia Fong (aka Twist/Barry Mcgee) and Todd James (aka Reas). Brush Strokes – An Artistic Exchange Between Todd James and Lydia Fong will be the first collaboration between Lydia Fong and Todd James since the Beautiful Losers show (although McGee and James are currently both in a group show right now at The Hole in NYC). These two artists are probably two of the best-respected and most-successful artists to come out of the graffiti movement since Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, so I can’t wait to see what they are going to do for this show. This is definitely going to be something special. Additionally, Brusk Strokes takes place at V1 Gallery, which has a history of amazing shows, which just makes me even more interested in the possibilities.
Brush Strokes opens July 9th (from 5-10pm, come hungry because there will be a grill outside) and runs through August 4th.
