We ran across these new Bates images in the Graffuturism thread on 12ozprophet.com. It looks like Bates has been putting in some work on canvas, and starting to push into new directions. Bates is a true Hall of Famer in graffiti. He has shaped and mastered the art of style for decades now. It is great to watch an artist with so much tradition in style and letters start to work on canvas, or in a gallery setting. Looking at the work, Bates remains true to his strengths yet starts to build some new concepts. We Look forward to seeing more from the artist in the coming year. If you know whose pictures or what exhibit their part of feel free to let us know.
