Out with the Artists

Cinco de Mayo: Art of Five graffiti wall at Hartford Prints

The Art of Five:
Graffiti Made Legal!

Thursday, May 8, 2014

7 pm - 8:30 pm

This fun group will modify their work just a bit to accommodate our indoor venue...but look forward to this evening not being your Grandmother's Art Demo!

Los Cinco, The Art of Five: This diverse and dedicated group of graffiti artists, each with their distinct personal styles, have established themselves in both the street art scene and gallery venues. Collectively they have exhibited throughout New England and Canada, with their most recent commission in Hartford CT for First Night events. Their artwork influences include graffiti, graphic design, color theory and Peruvian textiles.  The crew challenges their skills through collaborations on a large scale, often occupying full walls with bold gestures mixed with stenciled patterns.  Their strength and success lies in the dynamics of passion and teamwork to collectively assemble a daring statement embedded with contemporary culture.
