“Keep The City Gritty” was a group art show I put together including some of my favorite street/graffiti artists. The idea behind this show is that the gritty aspect of New York City is a large part of what makes it such a beautiful and unique place. There is so much energy and life in NYC and as it gets cleaned up and gentrified one neighborhood at a time those of us who have lived here for a long time can feel the energy and individuality leaving. With this show each artist provided their own street sign painted in their distinct style. The result was a beautiful collection of raw and energized pieces celebrating the spirit of NYC.
