Tomorrow is the opening of probably one of the most interesting exhibitions in the Street Art world this year, the Graffuturism 5 Year Anniversary Exhibition with an impressive lineup of premier Urban/Graffiti Art artists curated by Poesia and exhibited at 886 Geary Gallery in San Francisco.
Graffuturism 5 Year Anniversary Exhibition marks in many ways the consolidation of a journey that started in 2010 when Graffuturism decided to create a blog in order to showcase the work of Graffiti/Urban Artists who were underrepresented.
According to Graffuturism, there was an obvious gap in how the media had covered the art form: one side being about the new street art, and the other about traditional graffiti coverage, but no middle ground or coverage of graffiti artists who had pushed forward to explore progressive hybrid directions, or about the newer street artists who worked more like graffiti artists.
This is where Graffuturism comes in playing an important role establishing one of the most organized international group of artists within the larger Graffiti/Urban Art scene and featuring an emerging progressive global art form that, without doubt, has become one of the most important movements in the Art World today.
The exhibition intends to celebrate these five last years with an anniversary exhibition opening on March 14th that will feature the work of consolidated artists like Aaron De La Cruz, Augustine Kofie, Basik, Bom.k, Boris Delta Tellegen, Carlos Mare, Chazme, Christopher Derek Bruno,Duncan Jago, EKG, Geso, Gilbert1, Jerry Joker Inscoe, Kan, Kema, Kwest, Matt W.Moore, Moneyless, Morik, Nawer, Nelio, Pener, Poesia, Pro176, Remi Rough, Saber, SatOne,Thomas Canto, Tomek, Vesod, and West One. In other words, this is an event you cannot miss.
The opening reception will be Saturday, March 14th, from 7-11 pm, the exhibition is free and open to the public for viewing through April 4th, 2015 at the gallery located on 886 Geary Street, San Francisco, CA 94109.
