Street Art Pop-Up Store at Bushwick Open Studios


For several years now, writer Robin Grearson has been a major champion of New York City based street artists. She has curated several shows featuring street artists at The Active Space and her writings featuring local talent have appeared in a variety of publications and blogs, such as Artlog, Bushwick Dream, Curbs & Stoops, and Brooklyn Rail. And starting today, for Bushwick Open Studios 2012, Robin will take the unique step of turning her writing studio into a Street Art Pop-Up Store. The “store” will feature at least twenty artists, including Chris Stain, Daniel Feral, Jon Burgerman, LNY, N’DA, Royce Bannon and Never. There will be everything from original drawings and paintings to prints, zines and posters available, and surprisingly (with names like these!) nothing will cost over $300. Events like this are always a great opportunity for collectors to pick up a piece of work by their favorite artist on the cheap, so don’t miss out on this one as you stumble your way through a PBR-induced-open-studio-party haze this weekend!

One thought on “Street Art Pop-Up Store at Bushwick Open Studios”

  1. Since the early Neanderthals scratched out the Bison on the moist caves of Eastern France, Graffiti and Street Art have remained a very raw form of expressive Fine Art, which have shunned all class barriers and have emerged as a separate thread of work. Graffiti is derived from the Italian root meaning, “scratched out.” Technically, to narrow down its scope would be to define it as a surface art on the surfaces it is “not meant” to be displayed. For example, you would not define a ramshackle wall, or a car, or a window as a canvas to any artist worth his/her salt. For Graffiti Artists however, that would be a perfectly normal platform to present their body of work.
