Local, regional and international artists gathered May 5th–13th in DC’s NoMa neighborhood for the third annual Pow! Wow! DC mural festival.
A Chinese dragon, a host of spirit animals and golden characters, an endearing father and child, a gigantic chameleon, and more lined the stretch of the Metropolitan Branch Trail between R Street NE and New York Avenue NE. Charm City Streets captured much of the artistic action along this outdoor art gallery.
Wingchow (Richmond, VA) brought to life a 180 foot long Chinese dragon made out of candy gumballs. Despite its sweet composition, this deliciously mischievous creature may suddenly spring upon its prey.
Spirit animals inhabit the bunnies and hares created by Golden Rabbit Silent Monkey (Washington, DC).
Zunzima (Washington, DC) fashioned intriguing golden characters that seem to pop right out of the richly decorated red wall.
DC artist Martin Swift painted an enchanting portrait of a father holding his young son.
Local legendary graffiti writers HKS181 and CRI worked on dope new burners. Poor light and rain prevented photographing CRI’s work in progress.
Artwork by Marcella Kriebel illustrates two cookbooks. Along the Metropolitan Branch Trail her mural offers a scrumptious selection of fruits and vegetables.
Blend In Stand Out by DC artist BroCoLoco features a ginormous chameleon.
Ryslee (Berlin, Germany) sent Greetings From Nowhere. An apparent art critic commented upon the work in progress.
Rain Saturday and Sunday hampered the completion of these murals. Once the weather improves, Charm City Streets will publish photos of the completed artwork.
