Martha Cooper – Life Work show at Stolen Space gallery

Posted in Uncategorised

I am pretty star-struck to have met Martha Cooper at her show on Brick Lane last night. This inspirational lady brought us the revered Subway Art, a book documenting the graffiti art scene in New York in the 70s and 80s. If you speak to any graff writer they will have something to say about how influential this book was on their life – a serious piece of history. I highly recommend seeing the beautiful prints of these iconic photographs at Stolen Space gallery on Brick Lane – exhibition runs ’til 28th Feb.
