On Saturday, Nick Walker (interviewed) capped off his NY tour with a special print release of his The Morning After: New York print. The long awaited silkscreen was two years in the making as Nick officially created this image two years ago on the side of the Cooper Hotel.
Numerous fans of Mr. Walker queued overnight for their chance cop one of the 100 prints released to public. Hosted by the Opera Gallery, this release also showcased some unique site specific works which Nick has worked on in his previous trips to the Big Apple. What was special about his release was the opportunity for earlybirds to catch a few special AP editions which Nick additionally hand-sprayed. Hats off to the team as security was on hand to guard from last minute line jumpers. Those that missed out on the print didn’t walk away empty handed as Nick greeted/signed for each fan and gave shirts featuring his signature “(heart) Vandalism” as a gift to everyone who didn’t get a print.
To show appreciation to AM readers, Nick signed a “vandal pack” (yes there’s a shirt too!) for us to giveaway. To win simply leave a comment on his Facebook fan page here by 11pm EST march 10th.
