Considering the sudden and bleak demise of graffiti hub 5 Pointz, and with all of October’s Banksy hysteria behind us, this seems like an ideal time to look back at the beginnings of street art in NYC. See a host of never-before-exhibited paintings and sketches by the legends who drove the ’70s and ’80s scene, including Keith Haring, Lady Pink, Lee Quinones and more, culled from the holdings of downtown artist and collector Martin Wong.
