KEVIN SAMPSON

The Andrew Edlin Gallery in Chelsea ends its summer with another group show. This one—titled Anthems for the Mother Earth Goddess—feels much bigger than the city’s normal seasonal fare. For one, it’s made up of seven murals created specifically for this show. The artists range from graffitists, to dramatic social commentators, to abstractionists, to outsider...

VERS

If you’ve seen a mural by Brooklyn graffiti artist Vers, you’ll never forget it. Not only is his style easily recognizable, it also towers above most works being done on the streets today.
