New York City- On September 11th at 76 Wooster Street in Soho NYC, a new era in art begins as Bobby Hill’s “Bhillboards Artshow” takes over a 5000 sq. ft space on the 2nd floor in a townhouse style building that once housed Andy Warhol’s upstairs studio and Grace Jones’ La Vie main floor restaurant. DOORS OPEN AT 7PM!!! The first 250 guests to arrive at the show will receive a free NYC 9/11 inspired “Bobby Hill Multiple Original Art Print.”
On display will be OVER 200 original works of art in a range of media on canvas, paper and wood. Also included in the lineup is “MICA”, a 36 ft long painting (composed of eight canvases put together). A portion of the proceeds from the show will be donated to charity.
In anticipation of the show, 2000 limited edition pieces are being hidden throughout the NYC streets and subway system until Fashion’s Night Out. For the lucky ones who find these pieces, they will have the opportunity to get them signed at the show.
Bobby Hill is the New York-based visual artist who has been behind the scenes for years and is now emerging in the mainstream with his current body of work, dubbed Post Street Art. His professional career started as an illustrator when the art director of a popular hip hop magazine, found samples of Hill’s work in the corner of the publisher’s office moments before it was to be thrown in the garbage. His recent work combines a blend of pop imagery, aspects of street art/ graffiti and abstract expressionist elements that has the pulsating feel of NYC. He has sold countless pieces of work to various buyers including rapper Jay-Z.
