Robert Petrick is currently a New York City-based painter, with interests also based in Digital art, Photography & Letter Form Design.________________ In 1984, Robert Petrick stenciled two designs on walls along Avenue B. Capturing the zeitgeist of the time, EXIST / EXIT and NOWHERE / NOW HERE were photographed and featured in Vogue magazine. To them, the images exemplified graffiti as art rather than graffiti as vandalism, a concept that was gaining international attention after the release of Charlie Ahearn’s Wild Style and a number of hit songs and music videos. Back in the studio, Petrick has continued to work with this spirit in two important series, which draw a link between the street culture of the East Village, where he has lived for 68 years, and the power of language, which he has worked with his entire life. rwpstudio joined Society6 on December 17, 2013
