Every few months for several years now, graffiti writer Noah has fashioned an eye-catching new piece in Baltimore’s Graffiti Alley. Dope characters such as Rocko the Dog, Spongebob Squarepants, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or a pipe-smoking sea captain often accompany his artwork.
Brazilian artist Alex Senna, with collaborative support from Section 1 Project and Urban Walls Brazil, created a fascinating new mural on Union Street in Woodberry. Entitled Oh, Baltimore ain’t hard just to live?, the mural depicts three children playing with a small fire that’s generating a lot of smoke. To see more of Senna’s artwork, visit his website.
Yesterday, Charm City Streets reported on the incredible murals artists created during the 2017 Vancouver Mural Festival. The city abounds with art in public spaces, so today we look at the smoking hot burners, sizzling stencils, and wild and wacky wheatpastes we came across while walking around town. A visit to Vancouver is highly recommended, but note no matter the duration of your visit it will only whet your appetite to experience more of the artwork the streets of this charming city have to offer.
Last week, Charm City Streets spent several days exploring the streets and alleyways of Vancouver, British Columbia photographing the artwork created during the recent Vancouver Mural Festival.
The art scene in Vancouver is energetic and enthusiastic. This year’s roster of 50+ local, regional, and international artists featured a number of indigenous artists thereby honoring and enriching the area’s cultural heritage.
A few days ago, Charm City Streets took you on an extended tour of Jersey Fresh Jam 2017, New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop Festival. Today we return to Trenton to watch Damien Mitchell lighting up a wall at Jersey Fresh Jam.
Legendary – that single word is the appropriate way to describe Jersey Fresh Jam 2017 which Charm City Streets attended this past weekend. Jersey Fresh Jam is New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop Festival. Each year artists, DJs, graff writers and musicians from up and down the Mid-Atlantic come together in Trenton to celebrate Hip Hop culture. The tunes are unforgettable, and the artwork is stupendous.
Richmond is a great place to visit: magnificent architecture, delicious restaurants to suit every palate, easy to navigate and walk about, welcoming atmosphere, a noteworthy mile-long canal park, and it is only a 3 hour drive from Baltimore. All in all it is an ideal weekend destination.
