Celebrity graffiti artist Alec Monopoly celebrated his 32nd birthday with an exhibit opening at Eden Fine Art Gallery in SoHo. His first exhibit in New York City in more than 10 years, the artist displayed 25 new pieces.
Alec Monopoly is the alias of the unidentified artist. He is known for wearing a top hat and a bandana to cover his face and keep his identity a secret. Alec Monopoly is famous for exploring socio-politics and iconic pop culture characters in urban spaces. He has recently collaborated with Madonna, AVICII, Philipp Plein, and Tag Heuer.
The party featured impromptu dance performances, celebrity DJs Alexandra Richards and Alix Brown, food trucks serving fries in Monopoly-inspired top hats, and a custom designed graffiti cake.
Guests included The Clermont Twins, Julia Fox, Niki Takesh, Nicole Pollard, Logan Horne, Ezra J. William, Nick Murphey, Alex Carapetis, Oskar Metsavaht, Vika Levina, Riccardo Ambrosio, and Alex Ordonez.
The gallery show was inspired by Robert De Niro’s films—specifically Heat, Taxi Driver, and Goodfellas, and by Alec Monopoly’s signature muse: the Monopoly man.
The four-story Eden Fine Art Gallery is one of ten international galleries owned by Cathia Klimovsky. Klimovsky opened her first gallery in Jerusalem in 1997, and has since expanded to New York, San Francisco, and St. Barth.
