US+U/Warburton Galerie is pleased to announce our Winter Exhibition Jan 28-March 3, 2023 with special guest co-curator Tommy the Animator. Tommy the Animator grew up on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Born in 1972, he was influenced by some of the world’s most revered breakdancers and graffiti artists including the late Frosty Freeze (RSC), Charlie Rock (RCB) and George "SEN-ONE" Morillo (IBM). Tommy quickly embraced Hip Hop culture, diving in as a young breakdancer and then later as a music producer/MC.
Over the years, Tommy has become a master of multiple art disciplines and his paintings have been exhibited internationally. In December 2018, One Art Space presented Lyrics, a groundbreaking exhibition that showcased a series of Tommy’s abstract contemporary paintings infused with the lyrics of Hip Hop icons, Ice T, Kool Keith, Melle Mel, Large Professor and Smoothe Da Hustler. The innovative collaboration between the six artists, a true fusion of visual art and musical art, achieved widespread acclaim.
Tommy worked with our co-director Roddy Wildeman to curate a showcase of a diverse group of artists for our Winter Exhibition - we invite you to come see the show and celebrate our first exhibition of 2023!
