BEYOND THE STREETS now makes its way to New York City’s Brooklyn borough to launch an even more massive exhibition than its inaugural Los Angeles installment last year. Taking over two floors of the new Twenty Five Kent building in Williamsburg, the sprawling street art showcase boasts original artworks, sculptures, paintings, and installations by over 150 international artists including Futura, Shepard Fairey, Vhils, Felipe Pantone, MADSAKI, Takashi Murakami, REVOK, among others.

Highlighted presentations include MADSAKI’s second-floor space that features towering paintings and a large-scale Hollow sculpture covered in graffiti, adidas’ section in the first floor to honor the Beastie Boys with archival pieces designed by iconic artist Cey Adams and Kenny Scharf’s sizable booth that is covered with wall paintings of his imaginary characters alongside a totem-like sculpture. Moreover, Felipe Pantone wrapped a trio of tall windows to create an optical illusion and Todd James built an immersive room filled with all kinds of acid-induced works portraying his cartoonish subjects.

Tour the massive exhibition above and then visit BEYOND THE STREETS’ website for further details.

@madsaki ’s work is the culmination of his attempts to understand his bicultural identity growing up in America. Or more specifically New Jersey, right on the border of those hallowed grounds of the Bronx and Manhattan — the holy grail not only of graffiti history but the entire world of fine-art institutions and blue-chip-gallery culture. His paintings, “serious” spoofs of the most famed artworks of the Western world, rendered with a spray-can aesthetic, capture perfectly the sense of an artist at a distance from the culture and unsure of what the rules of art are supposed to be. What is art? What is graffiti? Where does a lack of inclusion in the traditional art world meet the desire to vandalize? That sort of rule-breaking led to MADSAKI’s recent output, where tags like MADSUCKY WUZ HERE make their way onto fine-art canvas, a balance of frustration between being an outsider and making fun of one’s creative roots.

The @obeygiant X @beyondthestreetsart X @montana_colors 30th Anniversary cans release tomorrow, June 20th at 8am PST on our online store! ⠀ “I’ve been using Montana spray paint for many years because it gives the best performance and durability of all the paint brands that I’ve tried out. When I was younger, and I was doing things very spontaneously, I wasn’t thinking about longevity, but even for an ephemeral art form like street art or graffiti, I think we all want paint to stand the test of time as much as possible. Creating and releasing these cans with Montana, which showcase my art using the paint that I use for my fine art in the studio and the murals that I make, it’s a logical and awesome collaboration. Thanks for giving me a little bit of love and another canvas for me to work on. It’s very meta – the can that makes the art, that ends up on the can.” -Shepard ⠀ #shepardfairey⠀ #obey⠀ #montanacolors⠀ #cans⠀ #colors⠀ #spraypaint⠀ #dontsleep⠀ #beyondthestreets⠀ #nyc
