Lava 1 & 2's Extravaganza Graff Art Exhibit -Saturday May 15th
For everybody who thought graffiti started in the early 80′s, Lava AKA Straight Man will be at the Maysles Cinema to set the record straight. Lava 1&2 started writing in 1970, when he wasn’t taking care of business as Supreme Commander of the Black Spades in Manhattan or creating the first Hip Hop flyers with Phase 2. The Black Spades went on to become Zulu Nation and Graf blew up in the 80′s but the generation that invented the language and vocabulary didn’t get the props they should have. Lava’s Extravaganza Graf Art Exhibit gives us all a chance to act like we know, with work by artists like Cornbread, Clyde, James Top and Tracy 168.
The evening includes a short multimedia presentation and biographical film on Lava, a group art show and reception.
