This past weekend Air Traffic Control hosted an art show with artwork courtesy of Big Doves, which I’m positive you’ve seen some of his work as he was actually the hand behind the â€œSuck My Kicksâ€ logo that has been implanted on dozen of shirts and endless event flyers and such. I believe he also did AF1 king Mayor’s tag as well.
Well, Big Doves definitely invaded South Beach, and even though it was a rainy night, tons of people came out to show support for work, as well as pay respects to recently fallen Miami graffiti artist, Oil aka Oiler.
The event was sponsored by Mi Gente Clothing Belvedere IX, and Amp’d Energy Drink. Big Dove’s photos draped the walls of ATC and a couple canvases and a painted boombox served as the centerpieces for the event, along with a tribute canvas to Oil, which was paired with a special pair of Air Force 1’s that Oil designed before he passed away.
I want to send a big shout to Safe of Mi Gente Clothing and to ATC for me and letting me take photos of the event. And a big shout out to the other people I saw out there: Derick G, ADBC, Fresh Da Barber, Reg from Shoe Gallery and homie from SneakerMeStuid.
