“I’ve always wanted to do a show like this. Lately, I have transitioned mostly into mixed media paintings, but I’ve been doing hardcore graffiti, if you want to call it that, for thirty-plus years. It’s what made me Cope2. But for me, I like to change it up and show all my different styles. So with this show, I’m able to show my evolution of style and how I’ve progressed. “Versatile” shows where I came from and what I’m doing now,” Cope2 said from his studio in New York. -Cope2
