Starting the New Year off on the upbeat is the impressive new mural DC artist Jay Coleman (@jayfcoleman) created in Baltimore’s Bromo Arts District. With Eubie Blake on piano and the exuberant young drummer in the foreground, one can feel the rhythm and the percussive beat emanating from this eye-catching artwork.
This past Sunday, in cooperation with MidCity Development and Recreative Spaces, Words Beats & Life hosted a live paint jam in Northeast DC. Entitled Roll Down Get Down the paint jam redecorated the metal gates covering the storefronts at 1301 Rhode Island Ave NE. The event featured prominent graff writers and street artists from DC, Maryland, and Virginia; plus live music and a vendor bazaar.
