Ten days ago there was an exclusive, two-hour show in a condemned NYC apartment building. 43 street artists secretly painted three floors of the soon-to-be-demolished building. And if you were lucky enough to recognize the building from it's mural, you were there. Gizmodo has a review.
The show, called Surplus Candy, was the brainchild of street artist Hanksy. I spoke with Hanksy's manager about how the show came to be. After a friend suggested throwing a party in an abandoned building, Hanksy saw the space and thought it would be a great opportunity to host a brief, and completely illegal, art show.
