ART | "Rochester (and Other) Landmarks" at Artisan Works


It's always fascinating to see the collaboration work between two very different artists. Graffiti artist Antonio "Chico" Garcia and photographer Jonathon White have been collaborating since the 1990's by combining White's prints with Chico's unique character creations. Chico is a graffiti artist from New York City's lower east side whose work can be seen all over the city. His style includes the use of vivid colors and a variety of characters that show off his talent. White moved to Rochester in 1997 and has since had work showcased in Western New York, Long Island, and New York City. His ongoing project, "The Colors of the Urban Landscape" brings together his love for both the city and color. "Rochester (and Other) Landmarks" will feature White's photographs of Rochester (and some of NYC) with Chico's incredible ability to make walls come alive, including murals of important people from Rochester's history such as Susan B. Anthony and George Eastman.
