CERN ONE

Before street art began party-crashing the blue chip galleries, Cern (aka CernOne, aka Cernesto) was a local tagger of subway cars and brick walls. His meditative, playful murals still grace walls (and a few regular delivery trucks) around Greenpoint and Williamsburg, the latter where Cern has kept a studio since the late ’90s. Those were...
