By: The Walter Art Gallery
As a writer (the preferred term for graffiti artists), SAR was in the famous crews "The Master Blasters" and "Rolling Thunder Writers." Many consider him a historian of Brooklyn Mass Transit graffiti from his Queens neighborhood. His work has been published in numerous magazines and books including: Under the Bridge, From the Platform, NYC Subway Graffiti, Freight Train Graffiti, Taking the Train, Fuzz One a Bronx Childhood, and magazines, Elemental, Move Back, and Hip Hop Connection, to name a few.
In 1991, SAR was featured in a Rap video by The Lords of Brooklyn titled Bombing the System. In the 1990s, SAR was also featured in the graffiti documentaries, Video Graff 2 and Video Graff 3. He also worked on set graffiti for the movie Sleepers.
SAR's most recent works have been sold at the prestigious Art Curial and Tajan Auctions in Paris. His work was also featured in New York City this year at the Queens Graffiti Legends show at the Village Works Gallery. His artwork can be found in the private collection of the Groninger Museum in Holland and Galerie Salvador in France. The Galerie Salvador collection was presented at the Halle Saint Pierre Museum in Paris, France, February 2022.
"Subway Rush" will run from May 20th through July 15, 2022, with receptions on the opening and closing dates from 6:30 to 9pm. Join us to see this vibrant, dynamic art and meet the artist!
