Tomorrow night June 27th at Under The Bridge Gallery in South Williamsburg Brooklyn will be hosting the opening reception for the world-renowed Japanese stencil artist Roamcouch.


Roamcouch is known for his knack to create prints and canvases featuring whimsical images of famous landmarks from around the world.  Roamcouch in his solo showing has created a series of stencil pieces that “he feels represent both himself and the spirit of New York City”.

The show features 11 pieces (Three of which are new creations by Roamcouch and are exclusive to UTB — Rainbow Inc./Brooklyn Bridge , Revolution, and Bomber Boy). 

Roamcouch best explains his inspiration and motivation behind his new pieces:

“For a long time, I have always wanted to paint the Brooklyn Bridge, and I was finally able to do so with Rainbow Inc,…Revolution incorporates America’s police car, which is a personal favorite of mine. America is a special country to me.”

Roamcouch is hailed by many as a modern master because of his reputation for taking up to a year to complete a single work.  Many of the pieces (which are very reasonably priced for decent sized originals) have already sold so get there early to scoop up one of the remaining few.

Additionally, three prints will be available for purchase at the opening (and will sell out at the opening):

Rainbow Inc./Brooklyn Bridge

497 mm x 914 mm (19 9/16 x 35 inches)
