Rap Quotes by Jay Shells ~ April 25th


Gallery1988 will host the first Rap Signs show from NY artist Jay Shells. Jay's street art has been featured here on L.A. TACO, The Huffington Post, Complex, Vice, in the LA Times, by the Associated Press and hundred of other artists, confirming the appeal of location-specific installations at the intersection of hip-hop and street art cultures.

For the first time ever, Jay Shells will take his Rap Signs to an art gallery, making them available for purchase along with photos of the signs in their original surroundings. Presented by Gallery1988 and our friends at LRG, Jay will be displaying 100 rap signs, both new and old-- one wall for East Coast, and the other for the West Coast.

Rapper Murs will be hosting our opening reception at G1988 (East) on Friday night from 7-10 PM, along with a DJ playing featured songs from the quotes. The show will run through May 17th.
