I love the way Nether’s graceful portraits of everyday folks — pasted onto abandoned and decaying spaces in his native Baltimore — interact with their surroundings. His current exhibit Crumbling Cities at Weldon Arts provides a wonderful glimpse into the world that Nether has created in Baltimore and in his travels. Here are a few more images:
The exhibit continues weekends through Saturday, February 16th at 181 Irving Avenue in Bushwick.

“Four Borough” is an exhibition of works by Cassius Fouler. The show opened last Thursday, July 12th at Weldon Arts in Bushwick and runs until August 11th.
The acrylic work by this mop-marker-wielding artiste de la nuit are like the purged thoughts of a true New York City vandal. The ‘grit and glory’ aspect of graffiti culture and urban life are captured through Fouler’s humor, by playing on the symbolism of the relevant places and objects to these lifestyles.
