Respectively born in Moscow and Brooklyn, Mint and Serf (a.k.a. The Mirf) are Mikhail Sokovikov and Jason Aaron Wall. After meeting in the late 1990’s, the duo made the city and the streets of New York not only their canvas but also their muse, taking graffiti to another level by playing with layers, materials and movements.
The continuous wilderness and the conflicted experience of what life on the streets can be has been a constant inspiration to the duo, whom we are prideful to count among our collaborators – the duo curated some of the in-room art for Ace Hotel New York back in 2009.
Support, Therapy and Instability, a showcase of their most up-to-date paintings, will be ongoing until February 22.
