“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Pablo Picasso

NYC Arts Cypher was established as a place for youths and emerging artists to have an outlet and a safe place to practice their art. As one of the forms of expressive art, graffiti/street art has always been incorporated into our initiatives and causes.

In 2006, we were the first organization to address whether this artistic style was art or vandalism. Now, we continue to recruit local and international artists curating public walls, commercial walls, gates, and our two level venue space is covered with mixed media, sculptures, street art and graffiti.

We host events to connect local artists, engage the community in with social projects, and are available for commission inquiries.
