Friday, June 25th Timebomb: 30 Years of Style Writing will open at Urban Folk Art Gallery in Brooklyn.

Ces, Duel, Easy, Faust, Ket, Noah, Part, Pure, Queen Andrea, Skuf, Vfresh and Wane will all be showing original paintings and a few artists will have limited edition prints available, which were hand printed by the artists at the Gowanus Print Lab, a fully equipped screenprinting lab in Brooklyn.
From the press release: “The show celebrates the roots of both hardcore vandalism and the fundamentals of more elaborate “piecing” style, fused with complex exporations of illustration, design and color. Each Timebomb artist is exhibiting new pieces from their growing bodies of work, unified by the theme of highly focused and expertly crafted graffiti art. Each artist exists in a league of their own, from Part’s legendary and brilliant graffiti career that began in 1974, to Wane’s vast and versatile knowledge of letters, to Faust’s perfectly chiseled handstyle, to Ces’ imaccuately painted wildstyle art, Duel’s classic New York City bomber style, Easy’s iconic presence as a graffiti titan, Ket’s skillful stylized bombing, Noah’s intricate and highly detailed modern interpretation of stipple techniques, Pure’s unrivaled mastery of the legendary TFP crew style, Queen Andrea’s whimsical letter explorations using popular phrases and hip hop lyrics, Skuf’s tried and true mastery of bombing and Vfresh’s remarkable fusion of graffiti and dynamic conceptual illustration, Timebomb is a undeniable expose of some of graffiti’s greatest and most innovative artists.”
