BRICKS, BREWS & CREWS PAINT JAM, Part 3

Headlining today’s post … the legendary Ichabod

Ichabod is the acknowledged maestro of freight car graffiti, and one can see his signature crumble and tumble pieces riding the rails all across the nation. Thus, it was a stand-out thrill for me to catch the legendary Ich in action at Bricks, Brews & Crews … and to add a limited edition piece of his to my personal art collection.

In posts over the past week or so, Charm City Streets has led you on a photo safari through twisting alleyways, inside an old factory, past warehouses trackside, and along the streets of Wynwood during Art Basel 2016.

Headlining today’s post … the former RC Cola bottling plant gallery

The former RC Cola bottling plant in Wynwood stood abandoned until Mana Miami converted it into an event space several years ago. The building and lot are gargantuan in size – providing over 2000 linear feet of wall space. Thus, graffiti writers now converge here during Art Basel to work their artistic magic on the wide expanse of concrete canvas.

BROOKLYN STREET ART – GRAFFITI 2

Headlining today’s post … Ribs on conga drums

The first few snowflakes have begun to fall in Baltimore, and outdoors the scene is calm and bright. That will soon change … for the worse. Weather forecasters say Old Man Winter is hell-bent on walloping the Mid-Atlantic with a wicked winter storm that will leave the area snowbound and as cold as ice. Maryland and surrounding states have already declared a state of emergency. Before hunkering down for the long wintry weekend, Charm City Streets shares with you the remaining graffiti pieces it encountered during visits to Brooklyn in 2015. Hopefully, this art display will bring a welcome splash of color and delight to the drab and dreary weekend ahead.
