HUF1 & The Fridge Presents:
FREE Opening Reception for the artist
Saturday May 7, 2016 from 6–11pm
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.
