To commemorate 20 years of ACID CIGARS Drew Estate partnered with five legendary graffiti artists from Brooklyn, NY. The only guidance we provided the artists was that each piece needs to proudly proclaim, “THIS IS OUR NEW YORK ACCENT!”
The “KUBA ARTE” artist team includes:
CHINO; one of the foremost practitioners and ambassadors of graffiti culture in the world, David “Chino” Villorente spent eleven-years as editor of the “Graf Flix” feature in The Source magazine which cemented his position as an important arbiter within the global graffiti community. He has coauthored numerous books on graffiti culture, most recently with The ABC’s of Style (Testify Books, 2018) as well as being an artistic collaborator with brands including, NIKE, REDBULL, ADIDAS, MASS APPEAL, Vh1 as well as co-curating the groundbreaking Beyond the Streets exhibitions in Los Angeles and New York. Villorente currently resides in his native borough, beautiful Brooklyn, New York. IG: @chinobyi.
DOC; A living, breathing legend and the very personification of Brooklyn. DOC worked the Moving Art Galleries (a.k.a. the NYC Transit System) at the dawn of street writing culture where his mission to ask “Who is Doc?” catapulted him to global recognition. IG:@DOCTC5.
KEO; TOP TC-5 X-MEN a.k.a SCOTCH70 is a bona-fide Brooklyn legend in the realm of NYC graffiti & hip hop. Weaving his charismatic “old school” aesthetic into the tapestry of urban art & pop culture, while redefining classic graffiti styles into fresh new work in fine art & design outlets. IG:@KEO_XMEN.
QUEEN ANDREA; a NYC-based fine artist, graffiti artist, typographer and graphic designer & is a leader in the newer generation of early 1990’s graffiti writers.
