'Street Art Saved My Life: 39 New York Stories' - coming this August to C.A.V.E. in Venice
Brooklyn Street Art presents:
"Street Art Saved My Life : 39 New York Stories"

In collaboration with Thinkspace, an art show to exhibit at C.A.V.E. Gallery in Venice (LA), California

"Street Art Saved My Life : 39 New York Stories" heralds the new highly individual character of stories being told on the streets of New York by brand new and established Street Artists from all over the world. Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo, founders of BrooklynStreetArt.com focus on this flashpoint in modern Street Art evolution by curating a strongly eclectic story-driven gallery show with 39 of the best storytellers hitting the streets of New York.

"Street Art Saved My Life : 39 New York Storie"s, the gallery show, accompanied by an LA street wall series by selected artists and a public panel lecture and discussion, intends to stake out the New Guard in street art while recognizing some powerful near-legendary forerunners.

The mainly New York lineup exhibits talent from other parts of the USA and internationally (Australia, France, UK, Canada, Israel, Germany) and it is as steely, idiosyncratic and storied as the New York scene itself.

The staunch individualists in "Street Art Saved My Life : 39 New York Stories" give voice to the evolution of the Graffiti, Mash-Up, and D.I.Y. movements that birthed them; creating an eccentric, highly individual, and raucous visual experience on the street. With widely varied backgrounds, techniques, and materials at play, "The Story" is the story. With truths as diverse and difficult as the city itself, each one of these artists is a part of a fierce, raw, new storytelling tradition that is evolving daily before our eyes.
