Even though both genres risk their freedom by putting their art up on the streets, the worlds of graffiti writing and street art are often separated and even completely antagonistic. Rarely does a graffiti writer turn into a street artist or vice versa. Enter Moody, aka Mutz.
This morning, the owners of Woodward Gallery on Eldridge Street discover that one of the art works by artist Moody at their outdoor Project Space across the street at 132A Eldridge Street was missing. Valued at $5–6,000, according to owner Kristine Woodward, the roughly quarter inch-thick wood panel was part of a street installation that the gallery has supported for the last five years as a way to provide exposure to artists.
