Cassius Fouler: Graffiti VS Street Art Published as Poster by Showpaper

By - Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

{image-1} The Final Cut: Graffiti Versus Street Art Cassius Fouler had show called Outer Borough a year ago at the 17Frost space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The paintings were created with a mix of acrylics and graffiti tools, consisting of flat color shapes depicting collections of mostly graffiti and hip hop-related characters and iconography that was humorous and insightful. The Final Cut: Graffiti VS Street Art was included in this show. It was the apotheosis of this style in this show, concisely summing up his themes and obsessions, and diagramming the eternal conflict between graffiti writers and street artists on sociological, economic and aesthetic levels. The issue of Showpaper with his painting in it is no longer on the stands, but if you contact Joe Ahearn, the Managing and Distribution Director at joe@showpaper.org you’ll be able to work something out. It was also previously reproduced as a black and white mini-poster in Daniel Feral’s first issue of his zine called SIGNAL! which focuses on graffiti, theory and photography. Currently you can see Cassius Fouler’s paintings in real life in the large group exhibition of graffiti and street art called Rather Unique at the Woodward Gallery on the LES in Manhattan, which will be up until February 19th, 2012.
