Graffiti

We were lucky enough to partner up with Under Pressure and Fresh Paint Gallery alongside a bunch of other great sponsors for an incredible exposition that starts this week. On Thursday october 30rd, the International graffiti convention Under Pressure will present a travelling exhibition called Out For Fame. This project is strongly influence by graffiti movement and have been build with the help of Art by Friends a French organization promoting local and international. Thanks to the help of Promenade Wellington the exhibition will be presented in an anonymous vacant space that will be revealed via a video on October 23trd. The opening event will present 35 pieces of artwork and hold a musical performance with 2 MC’s a 2 Dj’s. All the benefit from this event will be invested on the project so this
collection of work can keep continue its journey across the world with the next stop in Brussel Belgium. Out for Fame is a collection of artwork from all 5 continents which mobilizes the international graffiti community. Truly a tribute to the graf movement and its contributors, the exhibition puts aside differences between artists to focus on a common interest: lettering and graffiti.
