Opening last week was a beautiful joint show of new work by Supertouch buddies Rostarr and Saber at Opera Gallery in New York City. Having emerged from separate origin points within the underground art world, the two artists work in markedly different styles but are unified by their florid approaches to abstract painting with an emphasis on flowing script as centerpieces of their compositions.

READ: “THE NEW SAO PAULO” IN THE NY TIMES’ T MAGAZINE

March 27, 2013  |  art, Graffiti, Street Art  |  Comments Off

***SPAUL747463673

Check out the great piece in the recent NY Times T Magazine about Sao Paulo's recent urban cultural renaissance with a nice reference to Supertouch family Os Gemeos:

"...a so-called clean city law approved in 2006 prohibited outdoor advertising, suddenly giving São Paulo’s whitewashed buildings a strangely unsullied look, and allowing massive murals by street artists to ­occupy prominent swaths of the skyline. The dreamy, colorful paintings of the brothers Otávio and Gustavo Pandolfo, graffiti aces who work under the name Os Gêmeos (The Twins), offer prominent examples of this trend, while more subtle street murals like the black line drawings on white facades by Fabiano Gonper provide a cerebral critique of the scramble for wealth and power obsessing many in São Paulo."

EPIC SHOW: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT AT GAGOSIAN GALLERY NYC

February 22, 2013  |  art, Graffiti, NYC, Openings, Street Art  |  Comments Off

Basquiat-Untitled-Two-Heads-on-Gold-1982

Opening to a virtual madhouse of activity (and a sea of gallery security guards), the incredible retrospective of legendary renegade art icon Jean-Michel Basquiat at Gagosian Gallery has indeed proven worthy of all its ubiquitous pre-show hype. Short of the Brooklyn Museum's exhaustive exhibition in 2005, the show is easily the most thrilling collection of pinnacle major Basquiat works on view in years and should be considered essential viewing by anyone in NYC or with the means to get there before the show winds down on April 6th.
