Graffiti legend Delta 2 was grew up during the heart of the movement in New York City and began transforming his bold street-based work into mixed media canvases for gallery display in the early 1980s.
Untitled (New York City) stands as a tribute to the NY subculture, incorporating the artist’s tag, cityscape imagery, train tracks, and icons into a multilayered abstract composition. Delta’s inclusion of a CD, shaped into the form of an eye, is not only a nod to the hiphop culture inextricably tied to the graffiti movement, but reflects passerby’s and their surrounding environment as they approach the work.
