Street Style: Jerry Gant

BY Two Headed Monster

Street Style: Jerry Gant

If you’re like us, you’re always looking for a little style inspiration on the streets of Newark. And whenever we cross paths with visual and performance artist, style icon and true fashion dandy, Jerry Gant, a Newark native and fixture whose colorful and poignant graffiti-style murals can be seen all over town, we need look no further! As a poet, educator and activist, Gant inspires us with his words but also with his mere presence, as he consistently and artfully puts together outfits with a voice all their own. Whether you see him on Halsey Street having lunch, downtown installing his latest exhibition, or speaking to a youth group about his journey, make sure to stop him, take him all in, and tell him Two Headed Monster sent you!

Find out more about Jerry Gant this Friday at the screening of a documentary on his life.

    Right now it appears like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
