Urban Folk Art® Studios is proud to re- present the work of Mark Bode, Dr.Revolt, and Stan 153. The first ‘It’s Alive ‘ Show in March of 2010 was the 2nd gallery opening UFA® studios presented, and has stood as the most well received. The show will include new works from Dr. Revolt, Mark Bode, Stan 153. Lets recap if anyone hasn’t been doing their graffiti history homework, Dr Revolt is one of the founding members of The Rolling Thunder Writers (RTW) and is infamous for taking over the 1 subway line with his signature graffiti style (and creator of the ‘Yo MTV Raps’ logo). Stan 153, who got his start on the corner of 153rd Street and Eight Avenue defined the landscape of Harlem in the dawn of graffiti history, the 1970’s. He has been documented in The Faith of Graffiti by Norman Mailer. Mark Bode, son of the legendary comic book artist Vaughn Bode, has developed a worldwide following for taking his family legacy and applying it to the comic and tattoo industries, and has currently been showing art, painting murals (tributes to his own and his father’s notorious comic characters such as Cheech Wizard), and keeping his bloodline’s legacy alive worldwide.
The show opens Oct 19th and will be up Through Nov 19th. Urban Folk Art® Gallery is located at 101 Smith Street in South Brooklyn
