“the Albert Barnes of graffiti”

martin-wong-collection
 
Chances are if you have ever read a book on graffiti you’ve seen the credit from the Collection of Martin Wong. Residing on the Lower East Side in the 1970s and 80s, artist Martin Wong forged relationships and mentored early graffiti artists—his studio acting as an impromptu clubhouse—and collected as much work from them as possible. Five years before his death in 1999, Wong left the entire collection to the Museum of the City of New York, helping to preserve the history of this important ongoing art movement. On February 4th, “City as Canvas: Graffiti Art From the Martin Wong Collection” opens to the public, featuring “never-before-seen highlights of this collection.”
