Purchase Detroit Series 25 Original Painting Spray Paint, Acrylic Paint, and Mixed Media on Cradled Wood by Cope2 graffiti street artist modern pop art.
“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
The beginning of the new millennium found Cope2 in a different place in his career, as he started focusing more and more on ways to establish himself in the art scene of galleries and museums. Even though the artist had started working on canvas much earlier than the 2000s, it was then that he made this dynamic twist and agreed to exhibit indoors systematically. Whether you see graffiti as an expressive and lively form of art or as a form of irresponsible vandalism, one thing is certain; in recent years it has captured the attention of the general population to the world’s biggest galleries.
