Global warming affecting Baltimore! Many days this month the weather was more spring-like than early winter-like, and so art in public spaces bloomed all around the city much like an unexpected bumper crop of spring flowers
Every few months for several years now, graffiti writer Noah has fashioned an eye-catching new piece in Baltimore’s Graffiti Alley. Dope characters such as Rocko the Dog, Spongebob Squarepants, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or a pipe-smoking sea captain often accompany his artwork.
Brazilian artist Alex Senna, with collaborative support from Section 1 Project and Urban Walls Brazil, created a fascinating new mural on Union Street in Woodberry. Entitled Oh, Baltimore ain’t hard just to live?, the mural depicts three children playing with a small fire that’s generating a lot of smoke. To see more of Senna’s artwork, visit his website.
Yesterday, Charm City Streets reported on the incredible murals artists created during the 2017 Vancouver Mural Festival. The city abounds with art in public spaces, so today we look at the smoking hot burners, sizzling stencils, and wild and wacky wheatpastes we came across while walking around town. A visit to Vancouver is highly recommended, but note no matter the duration of your visit it will only whet your appetite to experience more of the artwork the streets of this charming city have to offer.
A few days ago, Charm City Streets took you on an extended tour of Jersey Fresh Jam 2017, New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop Festival. Today we return to Trenton to watch Damien Mitchell lighting up a wall at Jersey Fresh Jam.
Legendary – that single word is the appropriate way to describe Jersey Fresh Jam 2017 which Charm City Streets attended this past weekend. Jersey Fresh Jam is New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop Festival. Each year artists, DJs, graff writers and musicians from up and down the Mid-Atlantic come together in Trenton to celebrate Hip Hop culture. The tunes are unforgettable, and the artwork is stupendous.
While driving the other day along North Howard Street near the armory, I suddenly heard Tweedy Bird saying: I tawt I taw a puddy tat! I did! From a wire high overhead, the Cheshire Cat smiled serenely down upon passing motorists. Twas no advertisement for a performance of Alice in Wonderland; rather, the latest wire sculpture by Bawlmer’s incomparable Reed Bmore.
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.
The J, M and Z metro lines run on elevated tracks above Broadway in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood. Walking along Broadway and its side streets last month, Charm City Streets encountered a collection of fascinating murals and dope graffiti.
