Pure Evil Gallery & Street Life Presents ‘New York Kings’ Exhibition

Philadelphia, Detroit & NYC are all renowned for being the homes of the pioneers of graffiti. Stemming from over 3 decades ago the art movement has swiftly taken over the globe and has taken on different forms over the years, but there is not 1 graffiti artist that doesn’t still respect it’s roots and the godfathers who created it.

Characters such as Cope2, Blade, Stay High 149 as well as many others will go down in history for the way that they took to the streets, creating not only a platform for artists but also a method in producing a message to the people, as well giving their immediate landscapes a true transformation. 00

The best of these innovators became known as ‘Graffiti Kings.’ This small band of outliers and guerilla artists became known for their ability to place their names and tags in the hardest to reach places – and in turn were awarded the right to place a crown above their street names.

Now, for the first time in over 10 years the Graffiti Kings are bringing their work to London, using New York subway maps as their canvases to translate their 30 year story. Artists include Cope2, Indie 184, Blade, Stay High 149, Sen2, Fuzz One, Poem, Bom5, RD 357, Deck, Easy & Joz.

The ‘New York Kings’ Exhibition will be held at the Pure Evil Gallery, 108 Leonard Street, London, EC2A 4XS and will open 1st November – 18th November 2012, 10-6pm daily. This is a rare opportunity to see the godfathers of graffiti and the pioneers of the movement all together in one place and your chance to grab a piece of history to take home with you!
