MARCH MADNESS STRIKES DC

Headlining today’s post … building blocks by JAH ONE

What did 45 do now? What’s the latest political uproar? Does this have anything to do with b-ball? None of the above. We are talking about the tantalizing scent of aerosol paint wafting over Northeast DC for the past two weekends.

Acclaimed writers from Baltimore, DC, and environs gathered for a paint jam at the ginormous wall behind Forman Mills on Rhode Island Ave NE. Highly respected crews such as FGS, HOD, KPG, NSF, PA, TGE and others were well represented.

When the paint spray settled, eye-catching burners by JAH ONE, Mizta, Jurne, Rei21, The_Skrib, HKS181, Cedar and Vose, Rezist and Later, Walt and Huske, Stab, Wake, Scum, and others filled the 900 foot wall end-to-end.

A wintry shout-out to ROK – JAH ONE

Quite colorful characters enlivened the walls as well: the Lorax, Sir Hiss, a rat-eating cat, and a disgruntled-looking Pluto.

Jah-One and Adam Stab sent birthday greetings to Martha Cooper, the legendary documentarian who continues to inspire artists, photographers and graffiti writers around the world.

You may want to hurry to see these dope pieces in person. Words, Beats & Life generally sponsors the annual Fine Lines Paint Jam there in late spring.
