Dominique Philbert AKA “ERO” (Ever Rocking On) is one of the youngest of a pioneering group of artists in the New York City graffiti movement of the 1980’s. When ERO died on July 7th 2011 at the age of 43, it was a significant loss to New York City’s art community. Throughout his life, ERO’s work was included as part of exhibits at Patti Astor’s Fun Gallery, the famous ‘Five-Man Show’ which in 1983 toured Japan (other artists included were Fab 5 Freddy, Zephyr, Futura 2000, and Dondi White), and numerous other exhibits across the world. Most recently, ERO‘s work was displayed at GALLERY 151 in three separate exhibits: in 2007 alongside Fab 5 Freddy, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, and Koor as part of “The Wild Style” exhibit, in 2008 as part of a solo exhibit, and in 2009 alongside L.A.2 and SHARP in the “Green Style” exhibit.
ERO’s significance as an artist cannot be measured as the history of Graffiti and Street Art is still being written.
