THE LATEST FROM JMZ WALLS

Headlining today’s post … Chicago artist Jc Rivera for JMZ Walls

After last weekend’s outstanding Bushwick Collective Block Party, I had the opportunity to check out the recent artwork curated by JMZ Walls.

At Lin’s Laundromat, located on the corner of Broadway and Park Street, artist VBallentine99 painted a captivating portrait of a woman in native garb. Belowkey’s characters were up to their usual aerosol antics. And, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles received a make-over from Turtlecaps.

I was super excited to catch Chicago artists Jc Rivera and Sentrock in action on Myrtle Avenue near Mr. Kiwi’s.

The very next day I finally got to watch a favorite artist in action – from start to finish. Belowkey constructed a whimsical neighborhood bodega right next to the piece by Sentrock.
