    November 13th- December 7th, 2014
    Reception November 13th, 6-pm,
    Dorian Grey Gallery is proud to present four progenitors of the East Village arts scene;
    Keith Haring, Paolo Buggiani, Ken Hiratsuka and Scot Borofsky.
    These artists were at the forefront of the 1980’s contemporary New York City street art scene with their groundbreaking labors using the essential natural elements of earth, fire and paper. The selection of works on display will include early subway drawings from Haring, vintage performance based compositions from Buggiani, Hiratsuka stone sculptures and early works on paper by Borofsky.

    In the late 1970’s, an explosion of creative passion gave birth to the legendary East Village arts movement.  These artists used their gifts to address social and political issues directly with the viewer in street settings, frequently facing incarceration for this practice.  In this exhibition, we explore four of the scene’s seminal creators and practitioners of street based art.
