QUIK at Dirty PilotJuxtapoz // Thursday, 10 Feb 2011
NYC graffiti legend QUIK has some work up at DirtyPilot.com at the moment, all works on paper. There are over two dozen amazing works on paper, including maps and centerfolds adorned with quintessential Quik color and imagery.

Lin "QUIK" Felton (°1958) started tagging during the 1970’s in Hollis (Queens, New York), the neighbourhood were he grew up. He’s one of the few New York graffiti artists who made it to the art galleries and museums in the 1980’s. His work has developed far beyond the original tagging and although he preserved the spirit of the graffiti, he expanded at the same time their conceptual limits by introducing both social and personal topics into his paintings.
