Since May 2014, LOFT.297 opened its doors and it is the latest addition to the Amsterdam Street-Art gallery scene. But they just didn’t open, they openend with a bang by showcasing a solo-show by old-school Graffiti legen BLADE.
About the exhibition
Using the name BLADE, Steven Ogburn began writing graffiti in the early 1970s, during the infancy of what would grow to be a worldwide art movement.
The trains were his canvas, the tracks were his gallery, and his public were the millions of people who saw his work as it sped past them or halted in front of them every day.
This solo exhibition will consist of a variety of sketches, drawings, and a wall-to-wall canvas. Besides the exhibition, Blade will use this opportunity to present his latest book, “The King of Graffiti.”
