Heavy Hitterz, an annual group art show that features emerging artists from the lowbrow and graffiti art scene, is heading to Art Whino Gallery in the Washington DC Area for a July 25 opening.

Presented by gaNyan, Art Whino, and fabric8, this third annual showcase of emerging artists will feature 60+ international painters and illustrators from around the globe including Josh Taylor, Angrywoebots, MUNKONE, Ursula Xanthe Young, Estria, Phoneticontrol, and Stuter.

The concept for the show was first developed and executed in 2007 by curator gaNyan, who wanted to bring together the up-and-coming artists he admired in the character-based and underground art world. It debuted at Age Song Gallery in San Francisco with over 80 participants and much acclaim. In 2008, Heavy Hitterz Manila was presented in the Philippines at Pablo Gallery, complete with a block party featuring live painting and DJs in the streets.
For its third installation, gaNyan teams up with Art Whino and long-time collaborators fabric8 to bring Heavy Hitterz Maryland. All three have been long committed to the street art scene and are excited to join forces from West Coast to East.
