The evolution of graffiti and street art.
Had the pleasure of attending "Graffolution"'s great opening at the Soapstone gallery in midtown. The exhibit showcased the evolution and unity of both graffiti and street art. Over 40 different artist from all over the globe displayed their work.
The place was packed! It was an awesome turnout. Unfortunately, the exhibition wasn't very ventilated. And the overpopulation turned it into a hotbox! Everyone was sweating everywhere you looked. But this was the only "down" at the exhibit. I was incredibly impressed at the art that filled the walls, and the enthusiasm the audience had towards every single piece. I had the chance of documenting the art. Check it out and just a warning: my camera definitely sucks and i apologize :*(.
