Graffitti's Holy Grail

The graffitti world is buzzing with excitement at the discovery of a wall covered with the tags of old school superstars Fab Five Freddy, Futura 2000, Jean-Michel Basquiat and others. Believed to have once belonged to art critic Edit Deak, the apartment became a hang-out, a let's get high spot where the walls became a canvas for the aerosol artists. According to Yahoo News "the mural will be publicly unveiled Thursday as part of a retrospective exhibit of the graffiti art movement (1980-1985). Running until Feb. 15 in the SoHo building's Gallery 151 on Wooster St., 'The Wild Style Exhibit' takes its name from the iconic 1982 hip-hop movie."
