Wow, what a shindig and anniversary celebration! The doors were indeed blown wide open and the familial freaks came out in full force. In case you missed it, or want to come back to actually see the art, the show runs Saturday, October 22nd – Saturday, November 19th at 17 Frost Gallery, Brooklyn, NY 11211
Luna Park was in full effect moving serious stacks of her first book/launch, (UN) SANCTIONED: THE ART OF NEW YORK STREETS. This jewel shows some of the best action around through the eye and lens of one of graffiti and the street’s most respected photographers. You can buy it by clicking here!
