This Saturday night (February 20th), Conlusions from Rime (otherwise know as Jersey Joe) will be opening at Jonathan LeVine Gallery at their 529 West 20th Street location in New York. This debut show with the gallery from the MSK-affiliated graffiti artist will feature his mischievous cartoon characters that are commonly seen on the streets combined with a more abstract art direction. The locally-based artist further states – “starting with an empty space to paint, each stroke is thrown down unapologetically; influencing what follows.

On February 20th, Rime (otherwise know as Jersey Joe) will be opening his debut show with Jonathan LeVine Gallery at their 529 West 20th Street location in New York. Conclusions will feature a future turn towards figurative abstraction from the MSK-affiliated graffiti artist making use of bold colors and energetic compositions.

After recently joining some friends for a burner on the rooftops of Brooklyn, RIME returns with another mural in BK (on Grand and Union). Like another piece we highlighted from David Ellis (here), this wall from the MSK-affiliated graffiti artist was secured by Converse.

Yesterday, we tagged along with Greg “Craola” Simkins (featured), Dabs & Myla and Jersey Joe to watch them create a fresh mural christening the new location of Los Angeles print studio Static Medium. From 8am to the late afternoon, the artists took on the blazing sun with tons of spray cans using their crazy nozzle skills. They even got some love from the locals as they worked this urban beautification project. More pics after the jump…
