Death Disney at the Vault

Death Disney at the Vault

Friday, August 3

“Is it pop art? Is it street art? Isn’t that considered graffiti?”

Some of the best contemporary artists in the world started off as graffiti artists. There is a process that moves an artist from the street to the gallery; a process that guys like Basquiat and David Choe have followed. Choe once said “The dirty styles rule all other schools and styles. The layering, the personal touch to everything. I’m from the school of dirty styles, but it’s more than just style and surface, it’s every dirty thing that’s inside you..” As you can imagine just by the title, Death Disney has that sort of dirty style, the trick is bringing that style from the street to the gallery. On Friday (Aug 3)—as part of the Infringement Festival—two members from Toats Orig, local artist Malt Disney and Brooklny’s Deathbear, join forces to exhibit what could only be called anti-pop art at the Vault Arthouse. Exhibition opens promptly at 6pm, with music provided by Mario Bee. Refreshments available. —cory perla
