DRAW is a must-see art exhibition featuring original drawings by over 300 artists in the skateboard, music, urban, tattoo, literature, design, illustration, animation, psychedelic and new contemporary art worlds. The show is a tribute to the often underrated but
fundamental building block of visual and graphic art: the drawing.

DRAW is the largest contemporary drawing exhibition to emerge out of New York City. Most recently, the exhibit drew over 2000 people to its London debut at StolenSpace, East London’s Leading Contemporary Urban Art Gallery. The exhibit debuted in October
of 2006 at NYC’s Fuse Gallery to phenomenal response from audience and press alike. It had an equally impressive showing during the SXSW 2007 Music and Interactive-Film Festival in Austin, Texas. DRAW is currently on a six-country world tour that includes
future showings in Tokyo, Paris, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Berlin.

Artists whose original works are in the show include: Alex Grey, HR Giger, Clive Barker, Richard Serra, David Byrne, Dalek, Gibby Haynes of Butthole Surfers, psychedelic legend Rick Griffin, Ron English, Neck Face, skate legend Mark Gonzales, Ed Templeton, Jack Rudy, Sorayama, Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), WK Interact, Camille Rose Garcia, Tim Biskup, Benjamin Cho, Mark Bode, Kevin Llewellyn, Michael Hussar, Eric White, Rich Jacobs, Shawn Barber, Mike Giant, DAZE, Derek Hess, Mark Dean Veca, Brian Degraw, Nate Loman, Brendan Fowler, Aurel Schmidt, Gary Baseman, Shepard Fairey, Tara McPherson, Mars-One, Hank Williams III, and many, many more.
