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. Today’s leg of the photo safari leads past the walls Wynwood has to offer in other nooks and crannies. Be prepared to see spectacular graffiti.
Members of the FDC and the TGE crews connected in a small parking lot off NW 24th Street during Art Basel 2016. Over that early December weekend Charm City Streets repeatedly visited their alleyway to watch the crew members and other writers capture, electrify, and dominate the walls. The experience was incredible, and the artwork superb. The line above the masterful piece by Mast says it all … the force awakens.
Thanks to the collaborative efforts of Albus Cavus and Words Beats & Life, this year’s Fine Lines Paint Jam took place on Saturday, May 9th, behind the Rhode Island Avenue Shopping Center in Northeast DC.
The weather conditions were mild, and the painters cool and controlled; but, the artwork was hot. Bersk (Midnight Anchor), Ceda, Mas Paz, Mizta, The Ugly Kids, and Wake created excellent pieces. O.T.Pasha painted a most serene deejay. The villainous Harlequin, Ninja warriors, and other anime characters ruled their wall space. Deal crafted an interesting stencil featuring a quote from John Trudell, an indigenous poet and activist.
