Some folks got together under the city and threw a happening party in an unfinished part of NYC’s subway system. Some graffiti that was done there in early 2000 catches off in some of the party pics. In 2000 there was nothing down there but bare walls and space, glad it’s gone to some good use. See the whole story and photos at Gothamist.com

Klughaus, in collaboration with LRG and Brisk, is excited to announce PALINGENESIS, a special pop-up exhibit in New York City’s Lower East Side featuring Gorey and Paris’ prolific PAL (Peace and Love) Crew. The group exhibition features a roster of internationally-renowned artists including GOREY, HORFE, CONY, TOMEK, SAEYO, MOSA, ESSO and SKUB.
One of the most prominent graffiti crews in Paris, PAL is united by its members’ shared love of creative expression. With GOREY as a forefather, PAL has developed a unique movement and style of graffiti that is completely its own. While there is a complicated, yet fascinating line between graffiti and fine art, the collective has made a seamless transition into the art world in a tasteful way that does not categorize the work as simply “graffiti,” yet sustains the collective’s distinct styles and energy within a gallery setting.
The PALINGENESIS exhibition will showcase the collective’s debut in the United States as well as its artistic re-birth as evolving fine artists. Gorey & PAL’s incorporation of fine art elements into their work on the streets is pushing the concept of graffiti in a new and refreshing direction and we are thrilled to collaborate on their stateside debut.
The exhibit will be on display through May 19, 2013

Australian duo DABS MYLA returned to their hometown of Melbourne for their first solo show on native soil in four years. This Artist Driven spotlight sees the couple adding their colorful works to various surfaces in the city – with subtle nods to other Artist Driven artists like TYKE, POSE, KC, CRAOLA and VIZIE added in for good measure – before heading to Metro Gallery for an LRG-sponsored show packed to capacity with people energized to see the installations they had created.

Over the weekend the young kids at our wall put us on to the Harlem Shake. Having never heard of the trend or heard song that gets used, we went in anyway.
For the first wall clip we were listening to The Who’s “I Can See For Miles” playing from a car stereo
Big dude in black was not in on it, just wanted a shake.
