WHAT’S UP ON CHARM CITY STREETS

Headlining this month’s post … Ernest Shaw Jr. and his tribute to Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul

The flurry of incredible artwork in Graffiti Alley continued unabated this month. Ernest Shaw Jr. painted a stunning tribute to Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, and to John Coltrane, the ever remarkable jazz saxophonist. Megan Lewis created two more beautiful murals in her #blkwomen series next to which Ernest painted a stern-looking portrait of Pablo Picasso.

Climate scientists have concluded global warming, if left unchecked, will cause sea levels to rise. Verifiable scientific data indicates rising sea levels would inundate large areas of New York City and the boroughs by the turn of the century.

In a recent peer reviewed article in Squirrelly Scientific Amurican, scientists concerned about graffiti’s impact on global warming requested the public’s assistance with their investigation. Alarmed by all the dire warnings, Charm City Streets submitted documentation to these scientists. You need not file a Freedom of Information Act request to review this documentation. Charm City Streets now openly shares its information with you.

ABANDONED ART

Headlining today’s post … up on the roof with Userp

Abandoned and derelict buildings possess character, project a unique atmosphere, and assure graffiti writers and urban explorers alike an irresistible sense of adventure.

Over the past few months Charm City Streets has encountered spectacular graffiti in a variety of vacant sites. Please note that a physical visit to these dilapidated buildings requires care. Falling beams could squish you. A rotted floor could suddenly give way beneath you. Plus, there is danger of entrapment and myriad other unpleasant incidents.

Section 1 Project was quite prolific this month. Three large-scale murals went up at their Creative Labs in the Clipper Mill Industrial Park. The first mural, a collaboration between Pablo Machioli and Argentinian artist Federico Segatori, headlined Section 1’s cultural exchange program Roots/Raices – an event that explored the cultural identities that shape our urban communities. Alongside the building facing the Light Rail tracks, Nether created the second mural which he named The Guardians. And, toward the end of August, Section 1 Executive Director Richard Best started work on the third mural. It will feature a new 3D painting technique.

The strange weather this month (winter one moment, spring-like temperatures the next, and a strong thunderstorm with torrential rain) has kept most artists and writers off the streets. Moreover, Gaia is in India taking part in the St+art Delhi Street Art Festival. Nether has been busy in his studio. Pablo Machioli is in South America. In short, there was little art activity in Baltimore’s public spaces.
