Crowds at the Varsi Gallery in Rome for Skeme 3 Yard King gallery opening

Legendary New York graffiti writer Skeme made a name for himself around the world when his work was immortalized in the pages of Subway Art by Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant in 1984. His strong stylish letters still hold up today, and on the rare occasion that he flexes his skills it’s clear that he hasn’t lost a beat.

In fact, that was the case when Varsi Gallery in Rome invited Skeme to have a solo gallery exhibition. The show, titled 3 Yard King, brought the feeling of 1980′s New York to The Eternal City. The works in the show ranged from paintings on canvas to drawings on subway maps. Scroll down to check out photos from the opening.
