Woodward Gallery Project Space

Heading the new year is Artist Ka on the Woodward Gallery Project Space. Born in Queens, New York, Ka’s work is heavily influenced by his environment. He has been in the graffiti game since the 80’s. Ka has developed as an artist to incorporate natural elements with movement and depth into his urban compositions. The organic texture and dimension of Ka’s art, sets his imagery apart making it instantly recognizable. In addition to the street art and more formal gallery exhibitions, Ka has been involved in successful graphic projects creating and designing t-shirts, company logos and stickers.

Though he has been featured in numerous gallery shows, Ka still is very much inspired by the urban experience; getting his work out in the streets is important to him as a graffiti writer. Ka’s Welcome to New York City mural is a beacon on Eldridge Street compelling the public that this is where the action is.

This summer, as part of Woodward Gallery’s year-long 20th Anniversary Exhibition calendar, a Retrospective of Public Art will be featured. The mural from the outdoor wall of their Eldridge Street Project Space will be presented in unison, a massive installation covering the Gallery’s large interior space.

Woodward Gallery designated the public wall at 132A Eldridge for Street Artists to legally paint. Since 2008, invited Artists were asked to create a four panel work of art approximately 15 feet (457 cm) in total size. Over the years, this exterior wall of the Gallery’s annex–GHOST Art Lounge, has become a NYC attraction with thousands of Twitter and Instagram pictures shared to date!
