A score of local, regional and international artists gathered last week in NoMa for the third annual Pow! Wow! DC mural festival.
An intriguing sculpture, a bit of nervous nonsense, two eye-catching indigenous women, mesmerizing geometric abstracts, and an oasis graced the warehouse walls near the intersection of M Street and 3rd Street NE.
Michael Murphy of Perceptual_Art created a multi-layered sculpture the individual pieces of which form the face of a young woman. It was intriguing watching him build up the layers and see how the changing light throughout the day revealed or disguised the underlying layers.
On the warehouse roller doors Berlin-based artist Rylsee painted a seemingly panic-stricken mural entitled Nonsense.
Jamaican-born artist Taj Tenfold brought to life two vibrant, eye-catching women dressed in native wear.
Toiling in the direct sun, Johan Moorman and his shadow constructed a mesmerizing geometric abstract several stories tall.
Italian artist Joys fashioned an equally captivating abstract mural immediately left of Johan Moorman’s artwork.
Across the street, above the Oasis Market, Puerto Rican artist Lap was busy fashioning a dreamlike scene.
