Mana Urban Arts Project: RIME Video

In collaboration with Mana Urban Arts Project and Jonathan LeVine Gallery, Brooklyn-based RIME has created a memorial piece to legendary street artist NACE (NACEO), a graffiti innovator in the 1990s and a frequent collaborator of KAWS.

The location is particularly meaningful to RIME, as he and NACE used to paint the area often in the mid to late 1990s. “I felt like this would be a fitting tribute, many years after his passing,” RIME says.

RIME notices a difference in public appreciation of graffiti and urban art in the last 15 to 20 years. “People’s perception or apprehension towards graffiti is changed.”

This project is presented as part of a collaboration with Jonathan Levine Gallery.
