Dorian Grey Gallery (D.G.G.) has become one of the East Village’s most prominent art attraction for emerging art. The Gallery is geared toward showcasing established and emerging artists, and this summer, the Dorian Grey Gallery will be opening a new location in the Hamptons. The 2,000 square foot gallery in Water Mill occupies a former garage which was recently transformed into a spacious exhibition venue.
The D.G.G. is known for its large collection of “street art” and continues to be the primary exhibition space for local undiscovered and rising artistic talents.
The East Village gallery recently gained a great deal of street art credibility when they received an unexpected visit from Kenny Scharf, a well-known graffiti artist. He stopped by the D.G.G. and spontaneously painted a mural on the Gallery’s roll down gate. Scharf once lived across the street from the D.G.G.’s current East Village location during his graffiti heyday in the 1980’s.
The Gallery’s latest installation is a series of street art fused with automotive creations. Their collaborative partner, JoeMAC, pushes the boundaries between luxury automotive excellence and an authentic vibe of street inspired art.
The highlight of their latest installation is a fully functionally, street legal Ferrari Art Car. The Ferrari F 430 was entirely spray painted by the “graffiti maestro” John CRASH Matos and was finished at Martino Auto Concepts.
Additional works of art will be on display by noted international street artists, including STIK, Sharp, JPO, MiMo, BTA, Jeremy Penn, BD White, Hektad, THANKS, Free Humanity, Keith Haring, Futura & Lee.
An opening celebration for the new Water Mill location will be held from Friday June 10th to Sunday June 12th, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The Dorian Grey Gallery is located at 938 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information about the gallery visit, http://doriangreygallery.com
