CA, San Francisco: May 31, 2013: Vogue TDK solo show


1AM Gallery has a new solo show featuring spray paint on canvas and installation pieces by Vogue. "How We Do", opening May 31st, from 6:30-9:30pm, will exhibit a collection of images that represent the mastery of the aerosol art form and the world of street culture.

Here in the bay, daily life revolves around the day-to-day hustle and bustle of screeching car tires and passing train cars. As a long-time Bay Area native, Vogue's pieces are representations of the West Coast hustler’s daily fight.

"How We Do" will surprise viewers with the sheer potential of spray paint as an art form and the expert finesse of Vogue's hyper-realistic painting with the can. Expect to see intricate representations of street life iconography such as train tracks, car culture, and graffiti artists in the midst of urban landscapes.

Vogue TDK is an influential figure in the Bay Area graffiti art scene. He was Mike "Dream" Francisco's partner in crime in the golden era of the '80s. In the '80s he pioneered the skinny cap technique to represent realistic subject matter, which has grown to be the foundation of his airbrush business "Vogue Graphics" in San Leandro. His exceptional technique has inspired younger graffiti writers to perfect their style and lettering, raising the bar for contemporary urban artists.
