No Touching Ground is a street artist who occasionally provides Seattle with reflections of its own spirit, for better and worse. The police-beaten face of Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, larger than life on a building not one block from the police precinct, a building that would soon be turned into luxury residences. On that same spot before the construction, the visage of John T. Williams, the Native American carver killed by police. We can hope that in addition to this solo gallery exhibition, NTG will grace the city with some large murals, too. Look for all of it. - Jen Graves
Through installation, drawing, video and his signature hand-painted photographs, No Touching Ground provides a look at the activists that inspire him, the SPD’s excessive use of force and the homeless crisis in Seattle.
