Graffiti Masters Put On Exhibit At European Art Festival

Graffiti Masters Put On Exhibit At European Art Festival

train_lanciano2
Some of New York’s leading graffiti artists are headed to Europe to display their work at one of the world’s most prestigious exhibitions of contemporary art. Graffiti pioneers Blade, Haze, Quik, and Sharp will head to Venice, Italy for the latest Venice Biennale, which occurs, of course, every two years.


The exhibition of these American masters’ work is sponsored by New York’s American Folk Art Museum. The Museum, along with Benetton, will exhibit the work of four more artists from outside the Big Apple who are also working in the outsider/folk art genre. The eight artists will each create new pieces on-site at the Fondaco dei Tedeschi.


The exhibition is an important step in the further legitimization of graffiti as an important and valuable art form and not the illegal eyesore that some more conservative people still see it as. For more information visit the websites of the American Folk Art Museum and the Venice Biennial.
