Politically Incorrect


Politically Incorrect
New Work by Leon Rainbow

Speaking truth to power, being out of line, off color, expressing what we really think, letting it all hang out — these are often discouraged in our society, labeled politically incorrect.

Shut The F**k Up & Paint

About the Exhibit

Leon Rainbow is definitely one of the most prolific artists in the central Jersey fine art and graffiti scenes. His work is widespread – from street art to murals to commercial pieces, you gotta admire Leon for his hustle as much as his art. His art is great too – fresh, original, ambitious, and infused with that strange sense of humor that Rainbow always brings around. This exhibit will be a retrospective of his works from 1999-2013, a rare chance to see a large collection of his work in one place.

HELLO my name is will showcase the foundation of modern graffiti: the name.

To create HELLO my name is, a list of eighty artists from across the Americas and UK was compiled by DC graffiti legends ULTRA and CHE KGB. Each of these artists has received a canvas with an illustration of a “HELLO my name is” sticker that they will paint and return to the gallery. The resulting collection of works is the chance to see the breadth and depth of graffiti artists working across the US and abroad today.
