Preview: Cope2 "Resilient" @ Dorian Grey, NYCJuxtapoz // Thursday, 17 May 2012
NYC graffiti artist Cope2 is set to open a new exhibition, Resilient, at Dorian Grey Gallery in NYC tonight, May 17. The exhibition will feature new, abstract paintings and custom subway signs, with his signature "bubble letters" that we have come to know interwoven in more abstract arrangments.
From Dorian Grey:
For over 30 years, COPE2 has steadily risen to become one of the world’s most prolific and recognizable living aerosol artists on the graffiti art scene. From high fashion and sports apparel to popular video games, COPE2's art work has crossed over to popular culture. A self–taught artist, born and raised in the south Bronx, his paintings have graduated from the subway cars of the IRT line and now grace the walls of galleries and private collections throughout the world. Today his distinctive style has evolved to incorporate classic urban graffiti style “bubble letters” interwoven with intricate abstract compositions.
