Last weekend, WALLWORKS presented the gallery’s first solo exhibition from Nicer of TATS Cru entitled “Naughty but Nicer,” a pin-up inspired extravaganza from the graffiti legend. You’ll notice quickly from a few of the photos the rich attention to detail in the figures with layers of spray paint and tags in the background. Nicer beautifully took the idea of the traditional “pin-up” updating it to reference today’s ideas of beauty.
Hector “Nicer” Nazario began painting in the graffiti era of New York City / The Bronx in the 1970’s and 80’s making huge contributions to the art form. He is known well as a top graffiti legend and in 1996 joined two other artists (Bio and BG183, to make up the first graffiti company, TATS CRU. Since then they have been continuing to show the universe the importance of graffiti working on countless gallery exhibits and big projects throughout NYC and worldwide.
You can catch the show through March 25, 2015 at 39 Bruckner Blvd., a few short blocks from the 6 Train/3rd Ave/138th St., The Bronx, NY, USA.
