Skullphone & Curtis Kulig @ Mallick Williams & Co

Lenny Collado, who has been documenting graffiti — and more recently street art — with me this past year, made it over to Mallick Williams this evening for the opening of Scripture, featuring new works by Skullphone and Curtis Kulig. Especially impressive is Skullphone’s use of digital media and its haunting effect:

And Curtis Kulig’s iconic “love me” seems to work in any media on any surface anywhere — both inside and outside the gallery:

Mallick Williams & Co. to Feature New Works by Skullphone and Curtis Kulig

Since visiting its wonderful HUELESS exhibit back in the spring, Mallick Williams & Co. has become one of my favorite Chelsea galleries. I’m looking forward to its upcoming exhibit SCRIPTURE featuring new works by Skullphone and Curtis Kulig, two artists who continue to maintain a strong presence in the streets of NYC.  It opens next Thursday, October 6, from 6-9 @ 150 11th Avenue.

Chor Boogie: In the streets and at Mallick Williams @ Co

I’m a fan of Chor Boogie’s artwork– its blazing colors and visual rhythms. Although his style is a bit gimmicky, it works for me. Seeing his work on the streets is always a treat.  I stopped by Mallick Williams & Co at 150 11th Avenue in Chelsea to check out its current show Spectrum before it closes tomorrow, as Chor Boogie is one of its featured artists. While still delightful, his artwork’s impact was nowhere as strong as when seen on the streets.
