Today’s guest on the show is Graffiti, Mural and Studio artist, Rubin415. I met Rubin at his studio and we talked about his roots as a graffiti writer, painting in the Bronx, paying his dues, defining his style, the difference between street art and graffiti, various spray-paint caps, getting ragged or buffed, art trends, how New York changes you much much more.

Side note, there is extensive amount of street art and graffiti lingo being tossed around in this episode. So if you find there is a word you don’t quote understand, I’ve provided a glossary in the show notes of this episode. Just visit NewYorkSaid.com and while you are these check out the pictures I posted under the Rubin415 post to check out some of his latest work.

Artist Statement

Drawing from the diverse cultural and geographic makeup of his Californian roots, Greg Miller explores his relationship with the space he inhabits to communicate a particular urban experience. Working with both paint and collage, he constructs and deconstructs exploring the contradiction, ambiguity, and truth between urban streetscape and history.

Miller’s art is clever and cool. His abstracted backgrounds of drips, patterns, and phrases and the peeling back of layers provide a study in the impermanence of the things that surround us. His large-scale paintings and installations aim to make the most fleeting parts of American culture tangible. They grab us nostalgically, rousing us to enjoy the momentary beauty found in the impermanent parts of our lives. There is a fragile heroicness conveyed within the temporary nature of it all, especially within his construction of paper, wood, and natural materials, that gives Miller’s work liveliness and depth.

Greg Miller’s work is featured in numerous museum and private collections that have traveled internationally including those organized by the Charles Saatchi Collection and the Frederick R. Weisman Collection. The Get Go, a volume of his writings, photography and paintings, was published in 2010, and the first comprehensive monograph on the artist, Signs of the Nearly Actual, was published in 2008.

Miller spends his time between New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA.
