Brooklyn Street Art will be working with Gallery Brooklyn to put on a group exhibition “Geometricks”. The exhibition curated by the artist Hellbent is part of the visionaries and vandals series and includes work from Augustine Kofie, Chor Boogie, Drew Tyndell, Feral Child, Hellbent, Jaye Moon, Maya Hayuk, MOMO, OLEK, OverUnder, See One. It is great to see a blog that helps document Street art and Graffiti take their time and resources to put together an exhibition. It is tough for artists to get the opportunity to curate or develop ideas that they see taking place within the scene. Hellbent has focused the exhibition on the idea of Geometricks, and artists who are pushing the envelope in the streets developing abstract work. Geometric and abstract work has been making an impact on the scene for some time. Recently it has gained momentum and started to compete with the more representational and pop art inspired work. We strongly suggest you make this opening and support a great project and exhibition.



BSA teams up with Gallery Brooklyn, Brooklyn Crab, and Sixpoint Brewery to bring you a great night in Red Hook, Brooklyn on September 22nd.

GEOMETRICKS turns the spotlight on the movement on the streets that boasts bold color, wild patterning, sophisticated lineplay, and a modern approach to abstraction.

As the stylistic circle widens on the street, GEOMETRICKS grabs a razor-sharp cross section of the growing number of graffiti artists who depart from traditional forms of lettering, Street Artists who are not interested in Pop-inspired icons or irony, and fine artists who never considered the “rules” of the street to begin with.

GEOMETRICKS references modernists, tribalists, and the rhythmic symmetry of the natural world, with it’s hexagons and spirals and comforting repetitions. Old labels about graffiti and Street Art mean little; this group takes the formalist clarity that references geometry, folk art, and science, and often smashes it with an abstract hammer.

Parallel, perpendicular, rigid, curvilinear; lines and shapes intersect and play off color-rich pattern – challenging the shape, form and expectations of many in the Street Art scene. GEOMETRICKS show how graff and Street Art right now are exploding in a new direction together without first asking for permission, again advancing the conversation of art on the streets.

“I’m stoked to be able put together this GEOMETRICKS show with some artists who I’ve really admired for a long time as well as some of the new players on the scene. This show is a great opportunity for me to create a vision and really put a dream team of artists into one room and show people what I am diggin’ right now.” – Hellbent
