“Last night I co-hosted a presentation of Ezo’s recent paintings. Ezo is an active painter and bomber who goes back to the subway era when he painted in Queens. Many of us are familiar with his throw ups around the city done with Peak. Most recently I have caught sight of his poster bombing around town which has been a nice break from the boring ads that are normally featured in the streets around the city. His studio work like some of his posters channels the darkness sometimes surround us in the streets and in the people that we cross in our day to day existence. Themes of urban decay, humanity, war and peace are covered in his vivid paintings and is a testament to the troubled times we live in today in a country at war. It’s my pleasure to share some photos of a selection of his works with you all.” -Alan Ket
