3 Kings (Futura 2000, Lee Quinones, and Fab 5 Freddy) at Subliminal ProjectsJuxtapoz // Sunday, 31 Jul 2011
You shouldn't use the term "king" lightly, but with this line-up of Futura 2000, Lee Quinones (April Art in the Streets cover artist), and Fab 5 Freddy, 3 Kings is the perfect moniker. Curated by Patti Astor of the Fun Gallery and coming to Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles, this exhibition brings three ambassadors of NYC graffiti to Southern California.
As Subliminal Projects notes, "Subliminal Projects is proud to present its opening fall show 3 Kings, on view September 17 through October 8, 2011. In classic NYC Subway Graffiti lore, a “King” is one who has achieved the most recognition for not only excellence in style but for the mark they have made on the culture. For over thirty years these “3 Kings” have been at the top of the game. Their history-making rise to international prominence from the subway tunnels of New York City was recently chronicled in MOCA’s “Art In The Streets” exhibition. At Subliminal Projects they will be presenting their contemporary work created exclusively for this exhibition. Please join us at a reception for the artists on Saturday, September 17, from 8-11p.m."
