Rudimentary Perfection - Graffuturism

Matt W Moore (Portland, Maine)

It's starting to hit me just how significant this exhibition is shaping up to be. Already cited as "one of the finest to take place anywhere in the world this year", international graffiti artists have been flying into Glasgow all this week ahead of Recoat Gallery's ground breaking "Rudimentary Perfection" Graffuturism exhibition. 

Curated by the one of the invited artists, the acclaimed Scottish graffiti artist Mark Lyken, this ambitious project also encompasses a number of walls throughout the city. Maps are available from Recoat.

Here's a visual hint of what we can expect from each of the 10 featured artists...
