Prior to its grand opening, Baltimore’s dynamic Jessie Unterhalter and Katey Truhn created one of their signature murals on Union Craft Brewing in the new Union Collective at 1700 W. 41st Street in the Hampden-Medfield neighborhood. Their use of color, shape and pattern is striking. The closer you approach the mural the more intriguing the patterns and shapes within patterns and shapes becomes. You gotta check out this fascinating mural … and enjoy all that the Union Collective will soon have to offer.
Shortly after Thanksgiving my family gave me an early Christmas present: an all-expenses-paid trip to Brooklyn. Thanks to their generosity I spent 4 days late last week photographing street art in and around Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan.
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
For those of us from northern climes, the weather during Art Basel 2016 was summer-like. Truth be told, it was hot. One probable reason for the high temperatures was the artist Sipros. He was burning up Miami painting five murals of his own and then collaborating on the block-long mural of Trump as Batman’s The Joker. The Bushwick Collective and Mana Urban Arts Projects sponsored each piece.
