NEW YORK CITY KINGS

In the 1970's a spontaneous art movement exploded throughout New York City : Graffiti. RTIST Gallery is proud to host the Godfathers of this movement with a world first.

The New York City Kings group show will feature work from 24 of New York's biggest train painters and bombers from various crews and train-lines covering the entire state of NYC. 
Exploring new and old work from the Kings who helped pioneer this world-wide movement, the exhibition will include original works on canvas, paper, maps, sketch books, photography and prints. "This is the largest line-up of NYC's graffiti community assembled in recent years outside of the USA" states Jeremy Gaschk Head Curator at RTIST. The RTIST space will be transformed with an explosion of installations (designed by 1986.) to showcase the heart of the NYC graffiti movement and celebrate the artists that changed the world's art scene forever. Live performances from Dj Peril and King Excel of the Zulu Nation Melbourne Chapter, will also be spinning those rare east coast classics on the night.
