Catalogue Note

In the early 1980s, the photographer Tom Warren began the collaboration series in which he photographed an artist and invited them to paint on the surface to complete an artistic portrait. The idea was encouraged by James Poppitz, a director of legendary South Bronx Gallery Fashion Moda, where the graffiti and street art scene that had been flourishing was introduced to a larger audience. This is the first collaboration series. Toxic was a pioneer of Graffiti and showed extensively at Fashion Moda and Sidney Janis, the established dealer that became fascinated with the new movement. He was a close companion of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
