Industry City, Ground Floor
The Brooklyn Made Store / Corner Gallery, brought to you by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, represents the rich diversity of “Brooklyn,” as represented by art, products and brands that have been conceived and made here.
Our walls will be filled with the art of Al Díaz, best known for his friendship with Jean-Michel Basquiat and collaboration on SAMO©…, a well-known graffiti project appearing in lower Manhattan from 1978 to 1980. The tag and text slogans became known quickly on the streets and in the local newspaper media because of their wit and sardonic humor. Since Basquiat’s rise to fame, the SAMO©… legend has become a globally recognized graffito and has been celebrated as cutting social commentary throughout contemporary art history.
Artist: Al Diaz Curated by: SILVERTUNA STUDIOS + COLLECT WITH LULU
