If you are in New York City over the next few weeks, you need to check out The Grand Slam!
Bigshot Toyworks and PIQ Products present The Grand Slam, an art show of one-of-a-kind custom painted All City Style subway train models. The Grand Slam opens on November 22, 2014 at 4PM in the PIQ shop located in the Shuttle Passage of New York’s Grand Central Terminal.
The All City Style train is a DIY platform representing one of the most iconic (and controversial) canvases for street artists and writers worldwide: the NYC subway train. Created by Klim Kozinevich, and produced by Bigshot Toyworks, the All City Style trains were tremendously popular upon their introduction in 2004. Supported by multiple art shows in New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, Moscow, Melbourne, and more, the All City Style trains were embraced by the street art, fine art, and designer toy communities. Artists of all styles agree that the All City Style train is an excellent and unique platform for expression. In celebration of a decade of All City Style trains, PIQ gallery and Bigshot Toyworks proudly present The Grand Slam: the next chapter in this ever-evolving concept.
