July 2016 has claimed the dubious distinction of being one of the hottest on record in Baltimore’s history. Not to be outdone, the students in the Street Art 101 class taught by Richard Best at MICA kept up the heat by filling the Section 1 Project’s pop-up lot with hot new artwork.
UnderArmour is sponsoring the latest mural by Richard Best and Billy Mode. Located near Port Covington at City Garage on S Hanover Street, the mural will be over 350 feet long when complete in early August.
It is always a distinct pleasure to see new wheatpastes by Nether and Sorta pop up around town. Particularly striking is Sorta’s wheatpaste of rapper Yo-Landi Visser.
Charm City Streets had to bushwhack its way down an overgrown hillside to uncover relatively recent burners by Arek, Daver, and Meca; plus a treasure trove of historic pieces by a number of other recognized writers.
It bears repetition: During Artscape, Section 1 Project curated Scape Jam 2016 that showcased live painting by 18 outstanding graffiti writers and street artists. Nether completed a new mural at the Arabber stable on N Fremont Street in Sandtown.
Graffiti Alley saw a little action this month: Binx, Noah, Stink, Wak, and Uta Brauser.
