About the Exhibition: “SURFACE FETISH” aims to exhibit the unique artistic wit of these two internationally known legends, that have brought to the next level the idea of merging Pop art, animation and Japanese culture with urban art, inventing the now super iconic characters of “Space Monkey” and “Melty Misfits”. Heavy Metal and Punk music vibes, bright colors, bold lines, rigorous geometric shapes and dreamy cartoons-like figures, spread their energy into an upbeat and decisive form that can not be constrained in the pictorial surface and expand all over the environment, able to catapult the viewer into a cheerfully intense experience.
And while you are walking around NYC near GR Gallery, you can find some recent murals Buff Monster created inspired by his recent work. The 1st is a door he has rotated for years at 135 Division Street & Canal Street. The 2nd can be found at 120 Allen Street and Delancey Street on the Lower East Side, NYC.
