Emo Wants the World to Respect Jersey Graffiti
Seeing loud and energetic pieces pull up on gleaming metal trains is a rare sight in the US nowadays. While painting trains is a concept born in The Bronx, these days it’s more ubiquitous in Europe and other countries outside the States. There are some heads still putting in low-key work here in the States, but most writers keep their flicks close and away from prying public eyes, since laws can be draconian and repercussions severe. Occasionally people post their own work online, but generally the scene is kept pretty quiet.
The Jersey Fresh Jam is New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop festival. Since 2005, the event has grown from a small, humble event into one the most respected celebrations of Hip Hop culture on the east coast. At the twilight of every summer, aerosol artists from far and wide converge to adorn the walls of Terracycle INC with their signature masterpieces, while local and regionally known emcees, bands, and DJs provide the soundtrack for the days festivities. This event is free and open to the public. Come and share the excitement! Drone footage graciously provided by Seahage

I had the honor of being chosen as one of the artists to create an installation for an exhibition at Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey named “Aerosol: Graffiti | Street Art | New Jersey | Now”. Here is a write up from Morris Museum:
New Jersey—uniquely positioned between Philadelphia and New York City, the two historic centers of graffiti and street art—plays a vital role in the ever-evolving aerosol art narrative. This exhibition, co-curated by Will Kasso Condry, celebrates the vitality of graffiti writing and street art in New Jersey today through the work of twelve established and emergent artists, painted directly on the Museum’s walls.
4sakn, Acet TM7, Dave Mek One Klama, Dean Ras Innocenzi, Demerock, Distort, Elan One, Felipe Prox One Rivas, Jonathan Conner (LANK), Leon Rainbow, Maliq Griffin and Will Kasso Condry
I’ve got to give a huge shout out to Will Kasso for including me in this show and creating a stellar lineup, Ron Labaco and Dr. Cleveland Johnson of the Morris Museum for opening your doors to us, all of the other artists for pushing the culture forward and everyone who has helped make this show a success.
Aerosol runs until March 15, 2020. Visit Morris Museum for more info.
