Months after a war of words led to white-washed walls and hurt feelings, it looks like the artists who worked at the graffiti Mecca of 5Pointz have found a new place to paint.
A number of the artists who had their work displayed on the side of the Long Island City building have moved their brushes to Great Neck. The new showcase, titled “Wall Works,” can be seen at the Gold Coast Art Center. The work of 5Pointz curator Jonathan Cohen and artists Kid Lew, John Paul O’Grodnick, Veronique Barrillot, Shiro and others will show off their work until March 2.
Proceeds for the show will go towards the art center and its youth program.
