“Breaking & Entering” in Miami with UR New York

In the final days leading up to Art Basel Miami, the New York graffiti & street art duo UR New York (aka Ski and 2ESAE, aka Fernando Romero and Michael Baca) are busy putting the final touches on their extensive first solo exhibition “Breaking & Entering”. The full range and abilities of the artists will be on display, with everything from t-shirts & stickers to canvases, limited edition mini-trucks & shadow box diarmas. And while no one who is familiar with the work of UR New York would be surprised to hear that they are showing in Miami, many will be a little shocked to learn just how “Breaking & Entering” came about. Never ones to sit around and wait for anything to come to them, Ski & 2ESAE took matters into their own hands when they decided to become some of the first artists to find a space & finance their own show in the Wynwood District during Art Basel. And where true talent and ingenuity goes, a sponsor is bound to follow: Pop International Galleries¬†was soon on board and rest is history…in the making.

Before UR New York left for Miami, I stopped by their studio to see what they were up to and to preview some of their work for “Breaking & Entering”. The duo has really gone to the next level with these pieces, using clean, polished layers and vibrant colors to create texture & bring life to each piece. Ever present is their unique perspective on urban life and the positivity and strength that has taken them to where they are today. This is one show that is bound to be talked about for years to come, as others come to learn that sometimes breaking in is the best way to get what is yours!
