Veteran Graffiti/Street AL DIAZ (Bomb-1, SAMO©…WET PAINT) presents his exhibition “PREPARE 4 TURBULENCE, AL DIAZ �" UPDATED” his latest narrative and mixed-media work. A new collection of wry, pithy, and sometimes poignant commentaries on life during this stormy period we are experiencing. The use of previously unexplored materials and surfaces make this show very different from his past exhibits.
Al Díaz’s career spans five decades. Born and raised Puerto Rican in New York City, he was known by age 15 as a prolific and influential, first-generation subway graffiti artist. During the early 70s, his popular and recognized name was “BOMB-1.” After high school and the SAMO©… period, Díaz began to practice musical percussion and created recordings, including a performance on Basquiat’s collectible 1983 early hip-hop album, Beat Bop which also featured Rammellzee and K-Rob. After being “on the scene” during the 80s Avant-garde art boom, for many years Díaz honed his craft as a foreman/lead carpenter in the New York building industry.
Charlie Ahearn is an American film director and producer for Wild Style(1982), it is regarded as the first hip hop motion picture that capture hip-hop culture and graffiti art. Charlie is a creative cultural artist living in New York City. Although predominantly involved in film and video production, he is also known for his work as an author, freelance writer, member of Colab, and radio host.
