Arcade Art Gallery Presents: SAME "CRACKING THE CITY" (Kaohsiung City, Taiwan)

Read from the press release below:

Arcade Art Gallery is pleased to present “Cracking The City”, a solo Exhibition of new work by Taiwanese Graffiti Artist: SAME.

The show will take place from December 1st until December 14th 2018 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan ( No. 148, Liuhe 1st Road, Xinxing District, Kaohsiung City, Taiwan 800 )

SAME is one of the earliest Graffiti Writers on the Island of Taiwan, and consequently, one of the most respected. SAME has never stopped proudly representing Taiwanese Graffiti Culture, both locally and abroad.
Today, SAME continues to use his now easily recognizable and iconic Bubble Tag to push himself artistically and explore new territory.

This Exhibition features the most recent work from SAME; large-scale oil paintings on canvas incorporating classic SAME iconography with new imagery.
In this series his bold Bubble Tag has been torn apart. The message is clear; in order to continue in this world, to survive, sometimes you need to break things down and rebuild from the ground up. His works speaks on both a personal and public level to the fragility

of the current Graffiti scene, which is slowly fading away and being replaced by Corporate Sponsors with their own agenda.

Artist Bio:
SAME, AKA: SAYM or SAYME, started in Graffiti while he was still a High School student. He was heavily influenced by Hip Hop culture, and this served as the initial inspiration for SAME’s unique Hand-Style. In 2009, SAME participated in, and won, the first WALL LORDS Graffiti Event in Asia.

Since then, SAME has gained notoriety and has traveled Globally to connect with fellow Writers and continues to push the boundaries of his Oeuvre. As a result of his talent and dedication to the International Graffiti scene, SAME is a member of the world famous Crew: The Seventh Letter.

The Seventh Letter Crew is based out of Los Angeles and is recognized as an Institution of Street Culture. The Seventh Letter Crew is known for their World Famous visuals and Iconic street references. The Seventh Letter is regarded as an Artistic Movement of Graffiti Culture and is comprised of an army of Artists who all owe their roots to graffiti. The work of the Seventh Letter has been highlighted in Fine Art pieces shown in Galleries across the Globe, in countless tattoos, in commercial Graphic Design work, and has contributed to the Music Industry. The Seventh Letter demonstrates a consistent pride in their craft and offers foresight for future generations of young and upcoming Artists.
