Urban artists Curtis Kulig and Skullphone recently opened their exhibition Scripture in New York’s Mallick Williams & Co. Each artist, known well for their outdoor installations, created indoor works for this show. Skullphone continued his ultra precise dot paintings (previously covered) which mimic his LED panel installations which we have come to enjoy. Utilizing a meticulous painting process of altering the size of the paint, he is able to create a visual conceptualization of what he is trying to communicate. Next, upon entering Curtis’ space […]

The show, most likely unofficially, also extended beyond the walls of the gallery, with several street pieces popping up on the adjacent blocks. Take a look at all our […]
