Barry McGee & Todd James "FUD" @ V1 Gallery, Copenhagen

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 29, 2015
We like Todd James. He has been on the cover of Juxtapoz twice now, and continues to make fantastic works. We like Barry McGee, too. He too, has been a cover artist and continues to be one of the most recongnizable and successful artists to balance graffiti energy and fine art aesthetics into one beautiful mix. They are both showing new works in FUD, opening at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen this weekend. It is McGee and James' second double exhibition at the space.

Classic Twister

Graffiti // Tuesday, July 24, 2012
Back in 1996, you may have stumbled upon a good amount of handy work from Twist. 2 different markers and a handful of stickers will cover all quite nicely.

Here is a crispy clean Twist in 1997 with Chevy, Revok, and Kokes hanging out on a roof in the background.  A good time for S.F. graffiti scene.
