Check out more of his work
Jef Aerosol is our featured artist for the "Spray It, Don't Say It" exhibit at Bherd Studios through September 5th.
"Jef Aerosol belongs to the first and groundbreaking generation of street artists who has inspired and influenced many of today’s big names in Street Art. While stencil street art is relatively new to Britain, Jef started out in 1982 and soon made his mark in cities such as Paris. Using cultural iconography he has tirelessly continued to leave his distinctive and intriguing mark on the streets of major cities around the world such as Paris, Venice, Chicago, Amsterdam, Lisbon and London. Turn a corner in Paris, you might encounter vivid and life size stencils of Jim Morrison, in Chicago Bruce Springsteen or in Venice Dirk Bogarde. On a wall by Camden Lock you could come across Joe Strummer dressed as a spy or around Brick Lane, Gandhi in lotus position on a “No parking” sign."
Jef was kind enough to give us american's a break on his pricing due to our lagging currency exchange. His work has been selling for several hundreds more in Europe. So here's your chance to own an orginal from a world famous pioneer in street art.
