About: 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.

The exhibit will run throughout December 2014, stop by and see the artistry and graffiti history!
