Join Wallworks New York tomorrow, Saturday and February 28th from 5pm to 8pm for ‘Naughty but Nicer‘, a solo exhibition of graffiti legend and founding member of Tats Cru, Nicer.

The work in this exhibition is inspired by the famous pin-up girls who’s popularity picked up steam in the locker rooms of many soldiers during World War II — although their history reaches back as far as the late 1800s.

And for those who have visited Wallworks, you have already seen a collaborative piece between another graffiti artist legend, Bio and Nicer, who’s mural graces the outside of the gallery depicting a pin-up girl draped in a Puerto Rican flag dress. (I unofficially dubbed her ‘Nuestra Señora De Pol Mori’, a play on the area’s name of Port Morris.)

Nicer, born Hector Nazario in the South Bronx, ran the streets as a teen and left his mark in the art world and eventually became a pioneer in showcasing graffiti as an art form to the rest of the world along with the other founding members of Tats Cru.

The exhibition runs from February 28th through March 25th, 2015 and gallery hours are Tuesdays through Friday from 11am to 5pm and Saturdays and Sundays by appointment.

Wallworks is located at 39 Bruckner Boulevard at the corner of Alexander Avenue and they can be reached at 917.825.9342 or via email at wallworksny@gmail.com
