Official Gallery of the Museum of Graffiti
The Museum of Graffiti is a leading contemporary art history museum dedicated to archiving, preserving, exhibiting, and celebrating the works of aerosol artists who have transformed walls in our public spaces into vibrant masterpieces. In 2020, the co-founders of the Museum of Graffiti began curating works for their own art private gallery to provide an opportunity for collectors to access works from the leading creators from within this genre. Now, in 2022, we are opening this collection to the public. Enjoy.
Currently Trending: All Black Everything
“All Black Everything,” a comprehensive survey of Black graffiti art. This is the first exhibition dedicated exclusively to examining African-American graffiti from a scholarly perspective. The exhibition showcases multigenerational artists, including Bama, Blade, Delta2, Doc TC5, Dondi White, Ewok, Kool Koor, Noc167, Skeme, and Wane One. “In the 1970s, the Bronx was burning, thanks to economic turmoil and crime. It is no wonder that the imaginations of the African-American artists living in these neighborhoods propelled them beyond their surroundings into a world of fantasy and hope,” explains museum co-founder Allison Freidin and Alan Ket.
Featured Artist: Ghost
GHOST was one of the last kings of the New York City train writing era. He experimented with traditional letter styles until developing his own loose, funky and psychedelic letters that sprouted from his twisted drug seeped brain and his passion for bombing. When most writers see a train yard as an opportunity to paint a nice colorful piece, Ghost sees the yard as a place to bomb, to do hundreds of throw ups. He approaches his paintings with the same zest and casual grace as he does his throw-ups, with bold dripping explosions of vibrant colors and freaky cartoons. With frequent trips to Europe his style has inspired the new wave of Scandinavian-loose-bombing-style pieces. Today, he exhibits his artwork in galleries worldwide and does collaborations with urban culture brands. Despite this Ghost remains an enigma, he isn't social, and he does not want to be your friend.
