UR New York, the creative combination of artists, Fernando Romero and Mike Baca recently debuted seven original pieces of work as part of a new art tour, It's Your Town. Famously known for their collection focusing community and society, UR's new work at Pop International Galleries is inspired by "creation through destruction”, transforming the sometimes tough and negative perceptions of street graffiti into positive urban-industrial art.
Their work, focusing on New York City, will be on display through November. For travelers visiting New York City this summer, UR New York visit their new larger-than-life mural in the renowned neighborhood of Soho. The eclectic piece was created in partnership with New Amsterdam Vodka.
New York City is just the third stop in a yearlong trek across the U.S. for the “It’s Your Town” tour, with consecutive stops planned in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver and Austin.
