For the first time in London people will be able to get the buzz that New York is currently experiencing with the explosion of interest in counter-culture contemporary painting. Brooklyn is currently like the Soho of the sixties, with artists working closely together, feeding off each other's creativity, resulting in a whole new genre of art. The five artists we are bringing to London, have been carefully selected as controversial, maverick exponents of this subculture. Not only are they each keenly sought after, internationally, by galleries and collectors, but receive commissions by major organisations like SONY and NIKE etc.
