Street Wall is an exhibition dedicated to artists who work on city walls to create public art. The artists highlighted in the exhibition are creating an installation directly on the gallery walls. Each artist is given a 2 to 4 panel section of wall space on the interior of the gallery for them to wheat paste work in the gallery resulting in pristine versions of their public work as well as initiating a collaboration in close quarters. Curated by William Stitt at Fourth Wall Project in Boston. The show runs from Feb. 4 – Feb. 23.
LNY, Radical!, Tiptoe, Nanook, The Phantom, Geoff Hargadon, Zatara and Blackmath. LA artist, The Phantom, has been working as a street artist inter-nationally for over twenty years. He has directed videos for Rage Against the Machine and has also done their cover album art for “The Battle of LA.” Lo-cal Boston based artists Zatara and Blackmath have been working primarily in the area but have travelled all over to bring their unique work to the streets. Zatara uses collected screen printed images that combines visually over-stimulating scenarios of apocalyptic visions of society. Blackmath employs large woodcut prints in his wheat paste work. Intricate and beautiful it plays on emotions that are both whimsical and dark. Geoff Hargadon’s “Cash For Your Warhols” signs can be seen all over cities internationally. His collection of signs are part social experiment, making the viewer question its reality in our capitalist heavy landscape. New York based artists Tiptoe, LNY and Radical! have been populating the streets with their images. LNY’s work is both visually stimulating and carries an energy of offbeat images. Tiptoe uses mythological imagery in his savage and beautiful images that cause the commonplace walls in which they are pasted to become something more ethereal. Radical! Works both on the streets and off employing scenes of darkly comedic characters. Nanook, from Baltimore, uses humans and ani-mals in his animated line work wheat pastes. The style of his works moves perfectly on the walls of abandoned Baltimore buildings as well as in the gal-lery. Live screen printing by Antidesigns.
