POWERFUL IMPACT! BOOM, FROM A CANNON!

Available world WIDE! James and Karla Murray have released a book featuring images of original one of kind walls from Gawker Artists famed Summer 2009 exhibition, MOM & POPISM. Presented by Gawker Artists and curated by Billi Kid, MOM & POPISM reinterpreted the images from Murray’s book “Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York” in nearly life-sized prints that were mounted on wooden walls on the roof top of Gawker offices and then painted by several prominent street and graffiti artist. I’m super HYPED to be featured on the cover with Shiro and the legendary Lady Pink.

The book documents the completed artwork and includes interviews, bio’sĀ  and small peeks at the works in progress. I remember when we first started the installation process on a scolding hot day in August 2009 which was then followed by a day of torrential down pours. It was an exciting experience from the jump.

A unique feature of this book is that the reader can cut it up and re-create the Gawker Roof Top on a smaller scale! This makes for a excellent display pieces!
