In contrast to all the post-Sandy images we are seeing of a flooded subway system, here is a painting by Seth Tane called “Escape.” Be safe.
Believe it or not, Subway Art Blog turns 4 this month. To celebrate, we are having a party in conjunction with Goodbye Hello, a photography exhibition by Mike Ion and release of Carnage zine #3. I will also be releasing two zines: my own SubCulture #2 and NOXER DOD’s first zine, No Love.
I will be giving away limited edition posters to the first 25 people that stop by the event and mention Subway Art Blog, so come visit, have a beer, buy some awesome zines and check out some great photography!
Graff Cal has all the details.
A City of Children, subway art’s rookie of the year, has only been active a few months. In this short time, he has become one of the most recognizable street artists in New York City. Focusing mainly on the subway, his unconventional tag has gained the attention of many commuters.
I’ve been photographing his work since it started springing up earlier this summer and have put together a collection of his subway work. Check it out below!
I’m happy to announce that the second issue of SubCulture will be available early this weekend at the New York Art Book Fair. The followup issue focuses on etch and scratch tags in the subway. Click here for all the details!
A limited amount of the first SubCulture zine “Can It” will also be available.
Along with me at the Pantheon Projects table in the zine tent will be some of my favorite NYC graffiti zine makers. Ray Mock of Carnage zine will be selling issue 2 of Grilled, his zine about NYC graffiti doors, and issue 1 of Stuck, his sticker-focused zine. Making Deals will also be there selling all issues of their zine.
Also available at the table will be new zines by: The Old New York, AVOID, DROID 907 and more. If you are a fan of graffiti, you can’t miss this!
The Art Book Fair runs all weekend at MoMa’s PS1 in Long Island City. Come visit!
