SATELLITES – A WEEKEND OF STREET ART AND HIP-HOP MUSIC

Satellites Artscape _ Day 2 _ 01

Headlining today’s post … the collaborative mural by Billy Mode, Rubin 415, and Werc at Artscape 2015

During Artscape 2015, July 17th-19th, Section 1 sponsored the weekend-long street art and music event Satellites to raise funds to complete the urban art park under the Jones Falls Expressway.

An exhilarating array of prominent artists from Baltimore, New York, and Washington, DC painted live at several sites throughout Artscape. On Friday, you saw Rubin 415, HKS 181, Rok, Dutta, Felipe Goncalves, Nicole Fallek, Smoke, Wake (a favorite old school Baltimore artist and writer), Nether (known for his Wall Hunters: Slumlord Project, Visions: Sandtown Mural and Arts Project, and more), Cristen Hoyt, Worthy, Cloud, and Bank.

Saturday’s line-up featured Billy Mode, Decoy, Peter Krsko, Pablo Machioli (Charm City Streets wrote about his Follow Her series, collab mural on Warner Street, his murals in Sandtown and Highlandtown, and more), Adam Estes, Dah 1 (the graphic designer and special effects makeup artist who owns and operates Gotham FX), Chelove, Gary Kachadourian, Stab (another old school Baltimore artist who was one of the curators for Satellites), Reed Bmore (a mural; plus two of his signature wire sculptures), Dstar, and Werc.

It was electrifying to watch the collaborative mural by Billy Mode, Rubin 415, and Werc come together. Billy Mode is a Baltimore artist known for his stylized lettering and for building words into artistic constructs. Rubin 415 is a Finnish artist renowned for his complex geometrical creations. Werc was born in Mexico and grew up in Texas. You can see these cultural influences in the murals he has created throughout both countries.

Rounding out the event on Sunday were Paul Mericle, Breignstorm, Ride, Jesse Kuzniarski, Kike Castillo, Sorta (in late May Charm City Streets featured his Sandtown mural back in May), Goodloe, Mas Paz, Daver (another old school Baltimore artist and writer), Paige Orpin, and LaAnarchy.

The projected opening for Section 1 Art Park is October, 2015. Your next opportunity to help support Section 1, the world’s largest outdoor urban art park, will be Friday, August 1st, at the Park West Bazaar.
