RECOGNIZE! Graffiti Exhibit by Tim Conlon and Dave Hupp
When Tim Conlon and Dave Hupp decided to link up back in 2000 by tagging the streets as their only initiative, the two artists probably didn’t predict that it would lead to a full-fledged partnership that’s been influencing the graffiti world for the better half of 15 years. With RECOGNIZE!, Conlon and Hupp, who go by “CON” and “AREK,” respectively, pay tribute to both the amazingly skilled artists that laid down the blueprint and the rap culture that influenced it all. Even though the pieces for this project were made in 2007, they still look fresh almost a decade later.
