Presented by POP International Galleries

During the week of Art Basel Miami Beach 2011, Breaking And Entering, presented by POP International Galleries, will be a demonstration of UR New York’s vast range and ability to continuously produce groundbreaking urban inspired art. Artists Michael Baca – aka “2ESAE” and Fernando Romero aka “SKI” are committed to “breaking and entering” into the mainstream – letting their art loose on the world, all the while breaking the status quo and entering the art world on their own terms — offering intensely personal and vibrant works with universal appeal.

UR New York tells the stories of a new generation of artists. They are talented urban and street creators generally hidden in the shadows and more often than not arrested and punished for expressing their talents. Exhibiting in shows and collaborations globally, with companies such as Nike, VH1, and Pop International, these two authentic, skillful and versatile artists disrupt the stereotype of struggling artists. Rather than hide in obscurity, Baca and Romero break and enter into the professional art world. BREAKING AND ENTERING will be the first time they will present an entire solo collection making them some of the first artists ever to sponsor their own show in Miami around Art Basel in the Wynwood District.

BREAKING AND ENTERING has pieces inspired by experiences of traveling the world and interacting with people who have touched their lives. UR New York returns home from their travels, with an approach to art that relies heavily on their New York City heritage and the people and cultures abroad to which they’re paying homage. The artists will be releasing over twenty limited edition miniature trucks which they have painted to mimic the life-size NYC trucks they painted last year. There will also be merchandise so that exhibition visitors exit with mementos of their gallery experience.

Baca and Romero will be hosting a series of private and open-to-the-public events. The gallery will remain open through December 15th.

UR New York has grown up on the streets of New York City – Fernando grew up in Queens and Mike grew up in some of Brooklyn’s most notoriously tough neighborhoods. In the aesthetic allure of the street, Mike and Fernando started their own “gallery stand” on the corner Prince and Greene Streets a few years ago in SoHo, the originating point of New York’s hip, avant garde gallery district. Since claiming the street corner, Ski and 2ESAE are now fully represented by Pop International Galleries on West Broadway.

Founded in 1997 by Jeff Jaffe, Pop International Galleries – aka “The Pop Gallery” – is an exciting art gallery on West Broadway in the heart of SoHo, in New York City. Pop International specializes in Pop Art, Urban Art and art and photography that is derived from, or influenced by, popular culture.
