About the Artists:

URnewyork – Teamed together thru the art of grafitti Mike Baca aka 2ESAE and Fernando Romero aka SKI joined forces with the intentions to learn and grow as artists. Prior to the thought of ever making a living from creating art, we were forcing people to view our work around the city, illegally. We spent years painting the streets and dealing with the repercussions of the law until we decided to do something positive with our talents by forming a collective. We have put together nearly 50 show/events in the U.S and Internationally. The collective is based on the philosophy of creation through destruction, transforming the street graffiti perception into positive urban-industrial art. All members are New York based artists.

Conrad Carlson – Artist, DJ DirtyFinger.

Ellis G – Ellis Gallagher is known primarily for chalk drawings made by outlining shadows in New York City. Gallagher was born on September 9, 1973. He is a native New Yorker living in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn. Before his chalk drawings he was a graffiti writer, working in NYC mostly.

Abe Lincoln Jr – Abe Lincoln Jr. is a Graphic Artist living in Brooklyn NY and hails from Northern California. Abe’s work is informed by skateboarding, punk rock,mid-century modern design and a healthy dose of sarcasm. Abe’s work has appeared everywhere from the Streets of NYC to the foothills of the Indian Himalayas to the Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial. Abe has returned to his roots doing much of his new work by hand as well as returning to Street Art with both analog and digital sticker designs.

Chris RWK/Veng RWK – Robots Will Kill is an arts site dedicated to community and exposure for artists/media often disregarded by the mainstream art world. Set in motion in 2001, RWK is the brain-child of Chris. Rather than featuring his own work exclusively, he opened it up to allow the possibility for it to become whatever it evolved into being.
