FEAR NO ART 4
Thanks to revolutionary big-wigs like Banksy, Lee Quinones, and Swoon, Street Art is becoming more house-hold then forbidden fruit, more revered than reprimanded, and more accepted than door-slammed. But of course, even if your parents know who the Os Gemeos twins are, thanks to a rather grandiose public art-making exhibition this past August, that doesn’t make street art any more palatable or easily categorized. Indeed: the Street Art enigma has become ever-more abstract and hard to pin down: are these artists graphic designers or law-breakers? Are these people grocery-shopping regulars behind their elusive pseudonyms, or wild, shark-punching booze-hounds? And, most importantly: why are they all gathered in one room together?
Boston’s Fourth Wall Project will be the petri dish for FEAR NO ART 4, an exhibit showcasing the newest generation of street artists pulsating from both sides of the US including, but not limited to: the fantasmic master-mind behind tokidoki, the brazen SLICK of dissizit, the architecturally obscure Augustine Kofie, the vibrant hip-hop cavalier TooFly, Caleb Neelon (was here), and madman muralist Raul Gonzalez, Simone Legno, Shane Jessup, Kenji Nakayama, Sket-One, Jesse Hernandez, Cern-One, Gigi-Bio, Don-Rimx, Problak, Pac23. All of these about-to-break-free-artists have been gathered by the enigmatic Marka27, a graphic design extraordinaire, creator of minigods, and a prolific artist in his own right, is undeniably the link chaining this unique collective together. Undoubtedly, this amalgamation of talent is sure to create some sort of combustion, and you’re officially invited to light the first match.
Join us for the opening of FEAR NO ART 4 at the Fourth Wall Project on November 10th and see what street freak flags will be flying on both US coasts to come.
