The four panels across from Woodward Gallery have provided an ongoing gallery show on the street for a handful of years now, exhibiting the work on a fine line of gallery and urbanity. The exhibit space on the Lower East Side has featured the likes of near legends Stikman and Lady Pink, and also has played host to newer players along the Street Art/ graffiti continuum including Moody, Skewville, Cash4, DarkCloud, and a number of others well known to New York scene watchers. The space itself is a little more polished than it used to be and there are no dumpsters or the rancid stench of urine to accompany your viewing pleasure, but that’s what you have to put up with as Manhattan continues it’s descending transformation into maul of America.

Saturday night during the print show opening at Woodward that features a number of Street Artists, guests were sure to step across Eldridge to check the new installation by the emotional expressionist Kosbe, an artist whose biography and practice encompass graff, stickers, Street Art, fine art, and increasingly, Jackson Pollack. Like we said last year on BSA and Huffington Post, dude is one to watch, and if you were looking for an opportunity to dig through the layers, here’s a chaotic psycho-graphic in 4 parts splashed across the public promenade for you. Free.
