2501 has a solo show, Vajrapani, on view now at Elastico Studio in Bologna, Italy. The show runs through February 9th, and anyone who goes to visit is someone I will be extremely jealous of. It looks like this much-hyped artist really met the challenge of meeting and actually exceeding expectations in his first solo show since becoming so popular for his outdoor work. With Vajrapani, 2501 seems to have managed juxtaposing the mad rawness of graffiti and city walls with traditional fine art precision and beauty without coming of as the least bit corny, something which would have been all too easy.
