Excerpt from the essay by Shana Nys Dambrot, “Speedy Graphito: The Making of an American”: “Enjoying what has been a glorious and global 30-year career, the boyish-at-50 French-born artist Speedy Graphito has the next 30 years in his sights. So he did what a lot of people do when they develop an appetite for reinvention -- they sail to America. Speedy has spent the last three years on a journey of expansion and evolution[…] His time in America has been action-packed and every detail in the history of the change it has wrought is chronicled in the work he is producing here…” The book is available to purchase from the gallery, please contact us for details.
