Carnage NYC is proud to co-sponsor the launch of Alan KET’s new book, Urban Art Legends, at the Museum of the City of New York. Join us for a conversation with artists Nick Walker, DAZE, and KET himself to discuss their choice to challenge classical ideas of art through the uniquely urban medium of graffiti at the Museum on 2/9 (discount: ART http://bit.ly/1OzPLLQ).
All of the artwork released this month will be available at carnagenyc.com until 12/31. ANY order (including any zines) placed until 12/31 will come with a ticket for our big holiday raffle, so get your orders in now!
One lucky winner will be drawn at random and will receive an original sketch by RIME, an original piece by CASH4, a bundle of sold-out Carnage NYC zines, including a full set of KUMA mini screenprints, and an epic pack of hand-done and vinyl stickers!
UPDATE: We used a random number generator to draw the winner, and the winning number is 104. Congrats!
Check back tomorrow for the 25th Day of Holiday Graff!
RIME doesn't do anything half-assed. He's the guy who will come back to a live spot multiple times to finish or fix a piece to make sure it looks exactly the way he wants it to look. Similarly, he will add layers and layers to a painting in order to create something that is radically different from his graffiti in its format and yet uses familiar characters and his distinctive linework to create abstract fever dreams of animalistic human desires. The original drawings on paper and on postal labels RIME shared for the Amazing 24 Days of Holiday Graff live somewhere in between those spaces, blending and twisting letters and characters, but never abandoning the rawness of their graffiti roots.
As a bonus, we also have two original pieces by TOPER available today. TOPER is a New York City graffiti original with the history and style to match. He grew up in multiple boroughs and came up alongside some of the most respected writers and crews active in the city, so it is no surprise that his graffiti is as technically proficient and inventive as any in NYC.
