Carrer de la Carassa 4
The W/K Group Show brings together seven artist friends who have at one time or another exhibited, collaborated, shared studios, been published, travelled and more importantly experienced life together.
Each united at root by the humble spray can and motivated by self-expression through public artworks on an international platform.
This exhibition, curated by sheOne under the thematic scheme of Black & White, centers focus on the unique studio practice of each member of the esoteric art gang know internationally as The Wizard Kings.
