While gentrification in New York City and the politics of cleansing tend to erase legendary traces of graffiti that inspired artists all over the world, street art flourishes in Eastern European cities. One of these spots is Romania. New York is lucky to have three artists from this former East Block country visiting to paint the walls of the Romanian cultural institute. These three young artists, Nuclear Fairy, IRLO and Omar work as a collective and independently and will translate their unique cultural view into an installation across three rooms.
On Wednesday night there will be an opening of their work and Wooster Collective will be conducting an informal interview with the artists to understand their sources of inspiration, discuss their style and capture impressions of their first trip to NYC.
Please join us for drinks and festivities as well as the opportunity to meet these intriguing artists.
