Award-winning Artist McKenzie creates Urban Graffiti Art Series

Artist McKenzie has produced a new series of Urban Graffiti Art that incorporates abstracted graffiti based paintings into various licensed products.

"McKenzie’s Urban Graffiti Series has enjoyed an overwhelming response," says John Ershek licensing agent for the artist. "We have been in touch with cutting-edge companies who will be producing her designs for use on computers, cell phones, gaming consoles, and various electronic devices. Skateboards, surfboards, snowboards, even t-shirts, shoes, and purses are in the planning.

The "hip hop culture" has permeated popular culture in an unprecedented fashion; because of its enormous cross-over appeal, the hip hop culture is a potentially great unifier of diverse populations.. Hip Hop has become mainstream and as an age old practice, graffiti holds special significance as one of the elements of this culture. Graffiti in hip hop began as a way of "tagging" for one's crew/gang, and developed from subways and trains to the city walls themselves.
The first forms of subway graffiti were quick spray-painted or marker signatures ("tags"), which quickly evolved into large elaborate calligraphy, complete with color effects, shading, and more. As time went by, graffiti artistically developed and began to greatly define the aesthetic of urban areas. The rest of the world has begun imitating and adapting hip hop graffiti. Today, there are also strong scenes in Europe, South America, Australia and Japan.
"McKenzie’s art incorporates the skill of an artisan with the trends of popular culture," says publicist Gregory Brown. We are bringing the audiences what they want while raising money for worthy causes."
A portion of the proceeds raised through the sale of McKenzie’s art will support various charitable causes. If you are a charity and would like to be added to the artists’ support list please visit the website and request a form.
Today, hip hop is the fastest growing genre in the United States today. It accounts for more than 10 percent of the $12.3 billion in music sales. The overall hip hop culture has been established by this musical art form. It has gone from the fringes, to the suburbs, and into the corporate boardrooms. Indeed, McDonald's, Coca Cola, Sprite, Nike, and other corporate giants have capitalized on this phenomenon.
