Join Wallworks New York tomorrow, Saturday and February 28th from 5pm to 8pm for ‘Naughty but Nicer’, a solo exhibition of graffiti legend and founding member of Tats Cru, Nicer.
The work in this exhibition is inspired by the famous pin-up girls who’s popularity picked up steam in the locker rooms of many soldiers during World War II — although their history reaches back as far as the late 1800s.
When you meet John ‘Crash’ Matos, you quickly realize how down to earth and humble he is. 40 years ago he began graffiti bombing subway cars and soon became a major sought after artist and featured in so many galleries and museums throughout the globe, yet none of this seems to have changed his persona.
Now, after all these decades, Crash, one of the members of the world renowned Tats Cru, is putting down some roots in his home borough of The Bronx and opening up a gallery in Port Morris.
No matter what anyone says, The Bronx is the birthplace of Hip Hop…heck, even NYC Parks and Recreations knows this! Check out the cool historical video below:
