Museum of Graffiti Unveils “A Mouthful of Crome”: A Reflective Exhibition on the Evolution of a Graffiti Legend Presented by Voli 305 Vodka

In an unprecedented homage to one of graffiti’s most transformative periods, the Museum of Graffiti proudly presents “A Mouthful of Crome,” a showcase of new works by the artist Crome, commemorating 25 years since his pivotal role in Miami’s graffiti history. The exhibition opens to the public on March 5, 2024, at the heart of the Wynwood Art District, where the once-controversial art form now flourishes. The exhibit will be on view through May 15, 2024.

Miami’s vibrant urban art scene was never the same after local teenage artist Crome emerged in the mid-1990s with a novel style accompanied by an unstoppable urge to write his name on every possible surface in all of South Florida. His 1999 nationally publicized legal battles, alongside his partner Crook, put Miami on the map as a hotbed for the rebellious artform that seemingly just couldn’t be stopped.

Now, 25 years later, the Museum of Graffiti celebrates the artist for his contributions to graffiti art both in the streets and via his robust studio practice filled with color-soaked abstract portraits of people encountered over decades spent painting in the streets.  Crome’s works on canvas and paper show the artist’s perspective on real life encounters with the underbelly of society, inspired by his own journey navigating addiction, incarceration, and survival as an artist.

Guests of the exhibit can expect masterful paintings that communicate the artist’s raw emotion, a dedication to a life of art, and an honest perspective on life in an urban environment where people’s dreams are often lost and free thinkers are rarely celebrated,” said Museum of Graffiti co-founder and curator Alan Ket. “Crome’s paintings celebrate the marginalized and the fighters that inspire him to stay in the game as a working artist.

Wynwood, once the canvas for the renegade artist, now stands as a sanctuary for graffiti and street art, a place where the once-illicit is celebrated, and where Crome’s latest works can be appreciated in the light of understanding and respect. “A Mouthful of Crome” is not just an exhibition; it’s the culmination of a quarter-century journey, from notoriety to reverence, mirroring the evolution of Wynwood itself.

Join us at the Museum of Graffiti to explore the latest chapter in Crome’s artistic legacy, a collection that speaks to both the past and the future of graffiti. This is an opportunity to witness the rebirth of an artist and the renaissance of the art form he helped define.
