The Art of John “Crash” Matos

The Art of John “Crash” Matos weaves together the roots of graffiti and tagging growing up in the South Bronx with the immediacy of Abstract Expressionism and the bold colors of Pop Art. His career spans over three decades, starting with the subway trains of New York City to renowned galleries across the country and all over the world. 

Mr. Matos will probably give a related talk (TBA) as well as working with 4 students from Bridgeport schools to create an installation that will be part of show and will probably made into a video to run on a continuous loop during the exhibit.
