New Era, Cool J’s, Cushy Gigs Presents: Locals Only at Midpoint Miami

Miami’s Abstrk, Atomik, Pucho and Quake are four legendary MSG crew artists with a large following with the amazing talent and street creed to match. There will also be additional paintings and sculptures by Crome, Hoxxoh, Hest, Arive, Xeno, Five, Ox, Eson. The show will be co-curated by Jill C. Weisberg and Omar Khan.

The artists have have collaborated with New Era and Cool J’s. Abstrk, Atomik, Pucho, Quake have designed their own limited edition snap back hat with New Era, the industry standard in handcrafted, embroidered caps.

MSG has been creating large-scale graffiti murals in Miami, Florida for close to 20 years. Artists range from sculptors and bombers to fine artists and illustrators. The MSG crew started when a group of up and coming artists were doing a new style of graffiti that they considered Miami Style Graffiti. MSG members didn’t feel that the established crews, who were still doing 80’s style New York graffiti at the time, represented their work so they started their own movement. Back then there wasn’t the internet to lean on for inspiration; there was break dance movies, zines and the competition. The older artists kept their techniques to themselves because they were threatened by the younger artists who were getting up everywhere and backing that up with first-rate productions. Now MSG is the established crew, but times have changed and now they feel part of the same community that once persecuted them.
