Miami's PO$HDOG Exhibiting in New York's New Museum Along With Scharf, Fairey

Miami artist PO$HDOG is an important member of the prolific and internationally recognized art and music group Metro Zu. He's also one of 14 artists showing at WAT-AAH!'s "Taking Back the Streets" -- a project created in tandem with First Lady Michelle Obama's Drink Up initiative. It opens to the public Thursday, February 20, at New York's New Museum.

The pieces in the campaign advertise H2O in ways youth cannot ignore in hopes of converting soda fiends to water lovers. In addition to PO$H, Kenny Scharf, Shepard Fairey, Shanell Martin, Swoon, and more have created original pieces that will pop up in street murals around the Big Apple and on limited edition WAT-AAH! bottles.

The NYC exhibit will stay open through March 1 and travel to Miami sometime this year. We spoke to PO$HDOG on this monumental experience, his style, and how he went from drawing on backpacks to having one of his pieces on a billboard in SoHo.
