Last night to a packed house Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld presented Vertigo, an exhibition of fifteen new paintings from Neo-Expressionist painter Ouattara Watts. Even though large in scale, the paintings were no match for the 1000+ crowd of fashionable people who came to celebrate. Christos Katsiaouni was on hand to photograph some of them.
Vertigo will run through February 19, 2012 at 560 Washington Street, New York, NY.

Of course there’s a list over on Complex of the 25 Best Songs About Graffiti. The nice selection includes the creative 1992 point & rhyme freestyle by Black Thought & Questlove in On The Go. Enjoy that below.

Anyway, read The Maps We Wandered Into As Kids over on The Awl. It’s good.
