This recent work—created from memory and direct observation, as well as sampling imagery—embodies chaos and clarity while not limiting how images operate, and blurs the lines between practices, styles and subjects.
Percy Fortini-Wright holds both BFA and MFA degrees from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, where he now teaches as an adjunct. Mr. Fortini-Wright is described as a major force in the re-emergence of graffiti as an art form, particularly in the greater-Boston area.

The Nesto Gallery is located on the lower level of the Art and Media Center. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
