A bit more info on "No More Happy Face"
The idea behind Bishop 203's 'No More Happy Face' was born out of the artist's struggle to overcome some of life's hardest obstacles. He's realized that there is immense power in taking off the mask that most people hide behind when shielding themselves from pain and heartbreak. "Learning to take that mask off and to express my true feelings and thoughts, without having to worry about the consequences felt like total bliss," says Bishop "this is an idea that I have tried to carry with ever since. Don't hold back, let it all out, and be free."
Originally a Connecticut kid, Bishop203 was inspired early on by the bounty of bold colors and strong shapes that would wrap the walls and tunnels surrounding the Amtrak. As a child he grew up trying to emulate those styles while learning graffiti himself. Over the past 20+ years he has gone from a young hooligan (for lack of a better word,) tagging bridges, and slaying the metal dragons that travel this country, known as Norfolk Southern, to doing gallery shows and larger murals.
Now, 20 some odd years later, Bishop203, while still loving to put out his own works, also focuses on featuring other up and coming artists through his gallery/store called Low Brow Artique. Doing monthly exhibitions and selling the largest color variety of aerosol paints in NYC. He likes to think of his new venture not so much of 'passing the torch' but more of an environment to let others light their own.
