Art and much much more!

West Solo Exhibition

Recognized as one of the most prolific artists in the New York Graffiti scene throughout the 1980’s and 90’s. He began painting on the number 1 Broadway local subway line in 1984. Throughout the 1990’s, West, along with his ‘Fame City’ crew has been recognized as a major influence in the NYC graffiti movement with large scale graffiti mural paintings. Since 2001 West has pushed into the realms of abstract expressionism and stripped the artform of all of it’s traditional trappings of color, medium, and process. As a result a new unique language has emerged.

Here is an interview with the artist at  Galerie Magda Danysz , well worth checking out.
