The Bridges of Graffiti @ Venice Biennale ’15

thebridgesofgraffiti01

The cover artist of our current issue #30, Futura, was recently in Venice, taking part in a large group show, working next to other legends such as Boris Tellegen, Doze Green, Eron, Futura, Mode2, SKKI ©, Jayone, Todd James, Teach, and Zero-T. As one of the collateral events of 56th International Venice Biennale Arte, “The Bridges Of Graffiti” opened on May 9th in the presence of participating artists, and will stay on view until November 22nd at the Terminal S. Basilio.
The idea of this coherent show is to present the wide spectrum of creatives that are coming from the graffiti world. Differing in age, geographical origin and influences as well as their current work practice, the artists turned the abandoned ship terminal into an “art terminal”. Futura showed a large abstract triptych along with another large canvas piece, an iron sculpture of his legendary Pointman character, and painted a large mural which is probably the largest abstract works he ever created. Other artist also showed their signature works – Mode 2 painted large figurative mural using only outlines, Doze Green did a similar thing using his distinctive line work, Teach displayed some interesting work using industrial production as an art process, while Todd James once again showed his Vandal room installation. Along with these paintings, murals, sculptures and installations, two legendary photographers, Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant, showed their photos featured in legendary Subway Art book. Martha displayed her prints on a large clustered wall, while Henry’s photos of NYC trains were effectively projected on large real train size panels.
