New York-based artist Shie Moreno will host the opening of his Soho exhibition space on August 10, featuring work of his own as well as pieces by artists COCO 144 and Moreno Millan.
The space is described as an "anomaly in the now gentrified fashion and lifestyle district." Moreno's goal is to "extend the trajectory of the art titans who characterize SoHo," and he has enlisted two artists to get that arduous journey started. COCO 144 is a subway art pioneer, tagging New York City streets since 1969. In 1972, he and other street artists started began exhibiting graffiti in galleries, paving the way for countless others today. Moreno Millan is a Havana-based artist whose work is heavily influenced by the complicated and rich history of Cuba. This opening will also serve as a thirty year reunion between brothers, Moreno and Moreno Millan.
