HERE AND NOW will have on display a comprehensive collection of Tats Cru artworks curated by Fernando "SKI" Romero, telling the story of these artists’ astonishing and compelling journey.
Tats Cru, aka “The Mural Kings”, started making their mark some four decades ago –– way before many understood the true impact they would have on Urban Culture. In so many ways, this team of artists would redefine what it meant to be a part of life in New York City. While HERE AND NOW honors CRASH, DAZE and Tats Cru for laying the groundwork for so many other aspiring artists, and helping establish Graffiti for the true art form that it is, alongside these giants, Fernando also acknowledges in this event, Nick Walker, Eric Orr, Nicer, Bio and BG183, who have all inspired one another through the years, and continue working together to this day.
