Above Second Gallery Presents: Crash . Bio . Nick Walker "The Collaborations" (Hong Kong)

Read from the press release below:

Above Second is proud to present “THE COLLABORATIONS” a celebrate the legendary artistic collaborations among two master graffiti writers from the Bronx, Crash @crashone, and BIO @biotatscru, and a stencil master from Bristol, Nick Walker @nickwalker_art.

As part of the showcase, an uncanny collaboration between stencil and graffiti artists, hailing from two different continents, will unfold before visitor’s very eyes. This is a transcendental artistic experience, with canvases reflecting the evolution of street art as we know it today.

Crash, with his expressive colors and depictions of eyes, Walker’s signature Gentleman Vandal, and BIO’s motif of hearts will leave viewers in awe. These are three generation-changing artists that are ready to tear down artistic boundaries opening on July 21st at Above Second Gallery.

In March of 2014, I got a call from Nick about possibly collaborating on a mural down on Elizabeth St, LES. So I drove down to have lunch with him and to checked out the site, which was right above a boutique shop called GYM.

It was cool to create something that someone had to try and find; which was not easy considering it was on the rooftop of a small building. I thought about it, then called Bio with Nick’s blessing- to see if he wanted to be in on it. Who knew it was going to be quite a project- each mural was about 50′ to 75′ long and Spring decided to hide, and Winter decided to bless us with a few more days.

But it was such a cool project- with all of us experimenting and truly collaborating with new ideas and colours.

So jump ahead to 2015- I called both Bio and Nick and asked if we could do a few small collaborations to celebrate the murals from the year before. They jumped at the idea, and it took a life of its own. From the moment we started, we all felt that this was a special moment- that these pieces were going to be strong, creative, and fun. We pushed each other and the results speak for themselves… The pieces came to life from the beginning, and we are proud of our accomplishments.
