Gallery1988 and LRG Clothing is proud to announce it’s newest exhibit, the first Rap Signs show from NY artist Jay Shells. Jay’s street art has been featured on The Huffington Post, Complex, Vice in the LA Times, by the Associated Press and 100’s of other media outlets. He picks his favorite hip-hop lyrics that mention street intersections, produces them as official street signs, then places them at the referenced location. If you don’t know about Jay’s prolific work, check out the video above.

And for the first time ever, Jay Shells will take his Rap Signs to an art gallery. They will available for purchase, in addition to photos of the signs in their artistically placed surroundings. Presented by Gallery1988 and our friends at LRG, Jay will be displaying 100 rap signs, both new and old, one wall for East Coast, and the other for the West Coast. 

We are also excited to announce that rapper Murs, whose lyrics are quoted by Jay for the project, will be hosting our opening reception at G1988 (East) on Friday night from 7-10 PM. We will also have a DJ playing featured songs. This is a show you will not want to miss. And if you keep your eyes open this week in Los Angeles, you may just see signs all over the city! There is NO RSVP needed to visit this exhibit. This show will run through May 17th.
