It is said April showers bring flowers. I am not a horticulturist, but I can say the warm weather certainly brought about an explosion of crazy fresh graff and murals all around town. Here follows the artwork Charm City Streets came across during the second half of the month.
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.
After painting a stunning 100+ foot long mural in the Annapolis Design District, Mateu Velasco fashioned an eye-catching graphic mural for Section 1 Project. Roberta Pardo of Urban Walls Brazil collaborated with Richard Best of Section 1 Project to curate this latest mural at the Section 1 Project Creative Labs in Clipper Mill.
On Saturday, September 17th, the Annapolis Design District hosted its second annual Art In Action Street Festival. Craftspeople and their handicrafts, food vendors, live music, and hundreds upon hundreds of local residents filled the festival area.
