Write Of Passage Exhibit Opening Group Shot

Write Of Passage Opening Party Recap

The Red Bull Studios New York was buzzing with a who’s who of NYC graffiti culture this past Friday, as we held our Write of Passage Exhibit opening party. We’re talking some of the most legendary subway car assassins, wall burners and street writers to proliferate the art of graffiti to this day all in one room. It was an ’80s-inspired gathering dropped into a 21st century setting.

Drinks and laughs were shared as the cultural forefathers mingled with New York City tastemakers and industry leaders alike. And let’s not forget the other elements of hip hop in the house, including some ill curated tunes courtesy of Stretch Armstrong, and even a few breakers getting down on the dance floor. A huge mural-sized thank you to all who made it out.

Purveyors that couldn’t catch the opening can still experience the exhibit during regular gallery hours from the remaining Saturdays in October to November 23rd. Much respect to all who plan to share in the graf majesty.
