Josh Falk and Greg Maxim-Burdett, who goes by MRNVR, have known each other since the 1990s, when they were high school students in Leominster. They got involved in an active graffiti scene, and today they both work as visual artists. They have long had a close circle of artist friends who would mount group shows and throw underground parties at the South End basement apartment Falk and MRNVR shared from 2002 to 2004.
That informal group has since formed a collective called Project SF, short for the comic book characters Super Friends, and taken on mural projects around the city. This weekend at South Boston Open Studios, they have assembled a group show for the unveiling of the Thomas Young Gallery, Project SF’s new gallery space, which happens to be in the loft that MRNVR shares with his wife, Fumika Yamizaki, a member of the local band Viva Viva.
