The Fridge is excited to announce the premiere solo show of “HUF1” aka Christopher Huff, member of KGB “Krazy Graffiti Bros”—DC’s original & longest-running graffiti crew—with all-new paintings on canvas.  If you have ever ridden the Red Line on DC Metro trains heading toward Silver Spring from DC, there is a pretty good chance you have seen this young man’s work—as you zoom past it, sprayed in letters 8-feet tall on buildings and rooftops (alongside fellow KGB crew-members CHE, AERA, GATOR, ULTRA, etc.).

The Fridge Gallery Director, Alex Goldstein, has personally known the artist since the artist was a student in DC high schools, and enrolled in the DC summer youth employment program for “graffiti offenders” when he helped Fridge-favorite DECOY paint her famous mural “From Edgewood to the Edge of the World.”

“I am so proud to introduce The Fridge audience to this incredible body of work, by a remarkable young artist. Mr. Huff has not only battled sickle-cell anemia his entire life, but has meditated and practiced so deeply on personally improving his health that he has actually used his own inner-visions of blood cells as the inspiration and subject matter for the paintings in this exhibit.”

Combining the artists love of pop-art, graffiti-art, fashion, and typography, these canvases are unlike any others shown at the gallery before, and represent and amazing step forward in the career of this burgeoning talent: HUF1.
