Damien A Roman Fine Art and One Art Space are pleased to present Attack the Block, a concise survey of contemporary street art in America, September 18 through October 10, 2015. This exhibition opens with a public reception for the artists Thursday, September 17, 6 - 9pm.
Co-curated by Damien A Roman and Alex Emmart, Attack the Block features work by 25 street artists whose art is intricately linked to their urban environment. This diverse exhibition includes many subgenres within street art such as Pop Surrealism, Geometric Abstraction, Figural, Sociopolitical and classic Graffiti.
All over America, in every city, artists are currently changing the landscape. Armed with wheat-paste, brushes, stencils, spray enamel and other tools of their trade, these devoted ambassadors of art prowl the streets looking to utilize the urban landscape as their canvas. Whether the artists' impetus is to beautify urban blight or instigate a dialog within the community, there is no ignoring the creative mark that these artists are making and the international art world has taken notice.
One Art Space is located at 23 Warren St. in TribeCa, NY.
