The Rochester Series
Opening: August 30 The Seventh Letter Flagship Store & Gallery 346 North Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles http://theseventhletter.com/ But the buy who wrote a book on BLADE isn’t bad himself. Chris Pepe aka FREEDOM became a graffiti legend when between 1980 and 1996 painted a whole tunnel in New York, that later was called after him – ‘The Freedom Tunnel’. Since then, FREEDOM was in a search for a new place for drawing, and he found it in Rochester, upstate New York. The work that FREEDOM did inside of the new tunnel has now been transformed into an exhibition called ‘The Rochester Series’ that will have the same opening night and place as the show of his friend and colleague BLADE.
