P.T.V. a Group Exhibition

Thursday, June 6th, 2019

Opening Reception: June 7th, 6 – 10pm at Classic Cars West in Oakland, CA

On view: June 7 – 29, 2019


Spoke Art presents P.T.V. – a group exhibition featuring members of
the Bay Area graffiti crew Punks Thugs and Vandals. Including a diverse array of artistic styles,
inspirations and backgrounds, the crew’s distinctive characters are familiar to Oakland and
San Francisco locals, international travelers and beyond.
Starting in 2007, following a San Francisco Department of Public works press conference
proclaiming “It is currently up to the Punks, Thugs and Vandals what artwork goes up in the
city,” a group of friends began writing the moniker as a tongue-in-cheek reference to the city’s
stance on street art. Known for their characters and collaborative pieces, the members of P.T.V.
blend styles and genres to find commonality between “punk, hiphop, ska, reggae and taking
that same recipe into graffiti, politics and fine art.”
PTV characters can be spotted close to home in Oakland and across the US and
internationally in South America, South East Asia, Europe and the Middle East.


Please come out Friday, June 7th from 6 – 10pm for the opening reception of P.T.V. Spoke Art will also
be releasing a new limited edition screen print and enamel pin by GATS available first for
attendees of the opening. For more information, or additional images, please email
