Artist Reception December 12th, 5-8pm
PRESS Preview 3-5pm
Exhibition Dates December 12th - 31, 2013
Following successful shows in London and Tokyo, December 12th 2013 sees London street artist STIK’s New York debut showcase at the Dorian Grey Gallery. This exhibition will feature the study works from a 50 foot high mural sited on East 9th Street at Avenue A, adjacent to Tompkins Square Park, across the street from the gallery. Created by once-homeless British street artist STIK on the corner of Avenue A and East 9th Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, this deceptively simple stick figure raises one arm in a gesture of solidarity to the artists, activists and outsiders who occupied Tompkins Square over the years.
The gallery exhibition is a showcase of the vibrant preparatory works that went into creating the mural. Canvas work, drawings, printed material and sculptural work in copper and granite bring depth to this site specific and visually arresting exhibition.
The gallery will exclusively host STIK’s long awaited print release, ‘Liberty,’ and as well as the launch of the political journal, ‘The Bottled Wasp Pocket Diary 2014’, featuring STIK’s cover art.
