Argentina-based Gustavo “Kidmograph” Torres has taken over the web with his imaginative flips on sci-fi and pop culture imagery. His Tumblr of original art drips with alien beach postcards, lysergic cityscapes and dreamlike GIFs beamed direct from Skynet’s pleasure center. For the past few years, he’s created groundbreaking visuals for A-Trak as his personal art director, including two insane animated Low Pros videos and all of the motion graphics for the upcoming Gold Gone Wild tour. We’re proud to present Kidmograph’s debut solo exhibition as part of the FG Artist Series, showing in ou Brooklyn store on 536 Metropolitan Ave in Williamsburg. The opening is this Thursday, June 4th, from 6-8pm; limited edition prints will be for sale, artist will be in attendance, and refreshments will be served.
As a special bonus for his Fool’s Gold Artist Series photo exhibition, NYC graf institution Cash RFC painted a van we parked outside our Brooklyn store for the opening night party.

For more on the show, check out this great Mass Appeal interview with Cash conducted at the opening, and peep it in the flesh at our store on 536 Metropolitan Ave, open Monday-Saturday from noon-6pm.
Cash RFC is a NYC graf institution. Over the years he has also become a prolific street photographer, capturing the city and its denizens in all of their harsh, unretouched glory.

Come through for the opening on Thursday, 3/20 at 536 Metropolitan from 7-9pm. Refreshments will be served and limited edition shirts and photo prints will be available for purchase.
