Photos by G. Art by Fab 5 Freddy.
Fred Brathwaite aka Fab 5 Freddy is a pioneer in hip hop and graffiti. His latest exhibit is entitled “New York: New Work” and is showing at Gallery 151 in New York. His mixed-media canvases use a modified pointillism technique where he incorporates hand-laid crystals into his works.
It’s hard to see the crystals from these pictures, so perhaps a closer look will help you get the idea. See an extreme close up after the jump.
“New York: New York” by Fab 5 Freddy is on display at Gallery 151 until July 1, 2011. Gallery 151 is located at 350 Bowery between 4th Street and Great Jones in New York.
