After sketching 24/7 for 10 days straight it was finally time for my first ever exhibition i New York. I made more than 50 sketches during these 10 days and exhibited the pieces below. A huge thanks goes out to Montegrappa, everyone at Red Rooster / Ginny’s Supper Club and everyone who dropped by.
It’s now been a few days in New York and my main focus so far been sketching and kicking’ it with my friends. I’ve been sketching at a street art festival in Bushwick, on the L train, at Balthazar, a flea market in Williamsburg, at my friend Kate’s crib and at the local Deli. Trying to expand the Universe one sketch at a time. Working on instinct to create something that never existed before.

Fillin’ up my fountain pen. God bless Montegrappa for supplying me with unlimited ink. It gives me the chance to experiment.
Amazing things are happening to me – I’ve got my first ever exhibition outside Stockholm booked for June 11. More info below >>>
N.Y. State of Mind. A pop-up art show by OKOK.
Growing up listening to New York city Hip Hop and instantly falling in love with the art of graffiti writing through the documentary Style Wars – Swedish artist OKOK is now super excited to exhibit his art at Ginny’s Supper Club / Red Rooster in Harlem. As a kid, with Nas, Wu Tang Clan and Mobb Deep blasting out his headphones, running around on the train tracks painting walls and subways cars, New York culture was early a huge part of OKOKs life. 20 years and about 15 visits later he will now spend a week in the streets of New York to get inspired by the local cafes, restaurants and bars, riding the L Train, sun bathing in Central Park and listening to NYC radio while integrating with the New Yorkers. The work created during this hectic week will be exhibited June 11.
