Kicking it in New York pt.1.

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.

 

N.Y. State of Mind – a pop-up art show by OKOK. Red Rooster / Ginny’s Supper Club June 11 6PM-9PM. RSVP to NYCxSWE@Gmail.com.

Fillin’ up my fountain pen. God bless Montegrappa for supplying me with unlimited ink. It gives me the chance to experiment.

N.Y. State of Mind – a pop-up art show by OKOK.

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.
