        Tiptoe featured in "2 for 2" two-year anniversary show

        Leading up to our big 2-year anniversary show, we're going to share bios on each of the participating artists with a preview of one of their works for the show. (We're running out of time to post all artists, so now we'll have 2 per day!)

        Today we feature Tiptoe: Tiptoe was born into the rough and tumble atmosphere of Chicago. He is an artist who has participated in the Street Art movement on a global scale. His work has appeared throughout the United States as well as the Street Art Meccas of: Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, Sao Paulo, among others.

        Tiptoe came into his own as he danced through the labyrinths of urbanism during the wee hours of the morning. The work rides the line between darkness and light, chaos and control, self-destruction and self-manifestation. It worships the metamorphosis of an urban landscape as a meditation, while harnessing the beast within to navigate the complex urban life.

        Tiptoe now lives and works somewhere in the depths of New York City. His work has been profiled in various publications including, but not limited to: Chicago Street Art;; and He has exhibited in Chicago, New York, Boston, LA, Kansas City, and Brazil.

        Tiptoe was featured in our grand opening exhibition in April 2013, and we featured his work at SCOPE New York and SCOPE Miami Beach in 2014. We are very pleased to show his work once again!

        Vertical Gallery at SCOPE NY 2014

        Vertical Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in SCOPE New York, one of the top art fairs in the world, known for curating the most innovative contemporary art. Running March 6-9, 2014, SCOPE will present the highest level of gallery shows, collector tours and curated projects.

        We will feature UK artist My Dog Sighs, Australian artist Stormie Mills, and New York artists Andrew Poneros, Justin Penov, and Tiptoe in booth E15. This will be the New York debut for My Dog Sighs and Stormie Mills. Both artists have huge international followings, and both will exhibit brand new work at the art fair.

        My Dog Sighs has found himself strapped in to a well-deserved meteoric rise. With an incredible international following in Israel, Japan, and the UK, five sold out shows under his belt, and a strong following of staunchly loyal fans on social media; My Dog Sighs is fast becoming an important figure on the contemporary art scene.

        Stormie Mills has an international following for his iconic character based work that has seen him travel, work and show in London, Tokyo, Athens, Miami, and throughout Australia in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Working in a restricted palette of black representing dirt, white the attempt to remove dirt, grey a metaphor for the cityscape and silver for dreams, this palette is an expression of the sense of isolation inherent in his work. Stormie’s work investigates humanity in his pursuit to understand what drives our deepest desires and emotions.

        SCOPE Art Show returns to landmark venue, Skylight at Moynihan Station, for its 14th New York edition. Located within the iconic New York City Post Office, SCOPE will transform the Postal Dock with its 30-foot vaulted glass ceiling into a dynamic exhibition of 60 international galleries, representing the best and brightest contemporary work from emerging and mid-career artists.

        The fair opens on Thursday, March 6, 3-6, with an exclusive Platinum VIP Gala, continuing with a First View benefit for VIPs and Press on March 6 from 6-9pm, and will be open to the general public March 7-9.
