Drawings for the Masses: a group show of personal sketches made public

June 14th, 2013 | By | 2 Comments »


Drawing for the Masses is a group show of about a dozen international street showing, not just any drawings, but personal drawings and prepatory sketches that would be the blueprints for eventual murals. While a rough sketch of an existing mural may not seem that exiting, 999 Gallery assures you that these works are sometimes more precious to the artist than the public work since these were not intended for others to see. So, stop by to see see the personal work of 108AndrecoBorondoGaia2501Guy DenningHitnesLucamaleonteMartina MerliniMoneylessOzmo and Tellas.

The show opened last night in Rome’s 999 Gallery.

    This title is a little weird. Yes, the drawings are based on images provided to “the masses,” but this title seems to be utilizing the terminology to play up this Marxist angle. Yet none of these so called masses will be able to afford any of the work.

    Or maybe I’m just reading to much into it. Who knows?

    Hi R.P.
    The titile takes inspiration from a Depeche Mode album, Music for the Masses and wants to emphasize urban contemporary art is for the masses, “traditional” contemporary art is for elites. That’s all. Ciao, Stef 999.
