Wow, what a shindig and anniversary celebration! The doors were indeed blown wide open and the familial freaks came out in full force. 

Luna Park was in full effect moving serious stacks at the launch of her first book, (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!

“Heavy on New York artists, particularly her favorites and dear friends, the collection captures a splendid offering of the spine tingling pieces of ephemera one could stumble upon here in the last 11 years – if they did the hard work. Expertly collected and selected, this above all is a reflection of one personal journey.” – Brooklyn Street Art

We are honored to have written some words for it too.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The exhibition showcases the eclectic history of art in public spaces, from pre-graffiti to now, and the incredible talent that has come out of the streets and through AHA over the past decade; from old school legends to next level up-and-comers. 

While the exhibit was only viewable in the flesh for one weekend, it will be up online soon!
