MRS is an abstract collage artist based in New York. This series of collage works is inspired by graffiti art’s relationship to temporality. Each layer signifies part of a story about the battle for space, and for ownership of a wall. She builds texture through medium calling attention to the potential for beauty in improvisational amalgamation. The process is a simulation, and the product is an illustration of how the once-recognizable individual tag, word, or shape becomes hidden—some- times illegible—as it becomes a collective image made of anarchic impulses.
Smile Design Gallery merges art with the mission of providing dental treatment for people who need care. The gallery believes social enterprise can move the great masses of humanity forward, and with a passion for art, its founders have tapped the “art market” to do just that. The gallery has treated over 500 patients since inception in the Spring of 2013, collaborated with artists such as Mr. Brainwash, Chi Modu, UR New York, Fab 5 Freddy, Liu Bolin, Miya Ando and Swizz Beats, partnered with art dealers such as Martin Lawrence Gallery, and Klein Sun Gallery, and achieved industry milestones with a 2013 Miami Art Basel production rated “Top 10” by Vanity Fair, and granted charitable dentistry in partnership with the Holocaust Survivors Initiative, The Bowery Mission, Urban Promise Camden and many more.
