Bringing his own sense of style from Puerto Rico to the streets of Brooklyn, EPIC UNO developed his graffiti art whilst mastering his craft at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute in 1996. Within the graphic design field, urban grittiness continued to dominate his bold, colorful typographic approach. With over 10 years of experience as a graffiti artist, Epic is also a successful package designer, corporate identity specialist and illustrator. Having worked and collaborated with many companies including, Cannondale, Nickelodeon, Coach and Nike, EPIC successfully elevates graffiti art by embracing consumer culture, engaging broader audiences, and striking a fine balance in creating memorable, relevant art with a real urban edge.

Betty will be presenting her limited edition prints created for the evening of the event in collaboration with Norwalk's Center for Contemporary Printmaking, at a specially reduced price (this night only), for Arts Alive! “Collector’s Opportunity”. 

A Connecticut based artist, Betty Ball received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, with further studies at Silvermine Arts Center and Norwalk’s Center for Contemporary Printmaking. She creates her art in her Rowayton studio, specializing in series of colorful oil-based paintings and enigmatic, subtle prints of blooms.

About the Artwork in the Bendheim Gallery During the evening of Arts Alive!

This year the Bendheim Gallery is presenting "Deconstruction". The exhibition seeks to link the historical origins of high art with contemporary images and iconography, reinventing modern culture's interpretation of art. Often taking familiar images and objects, these artists apply their own unique contemporary techniques, evocatively testing senses and triggering memories along the way.
The show also serves as a backdrop to the evening of Arts Alive. For more information about the exhibition, please visit the Bendheim Gallery Page.
