Happy Halloween! In days of yore, many feared the boundary between the world of the living and the realm of the dead blurred on All Hallow’s Eve. Spirits of the dearly departed and all manner of frightful creatures were thought to come forth through this haze and roam about on this very night. Even brain-thirsty zombies may be out and about. Speaking of zombies, were you aware a survey conducted last year shows Baltimore to be one of the top five U.S. cities most likely to survive a zombie apocalypse?
Remain calm – at last check Baltimore is all clear of the walking dead. However, hordes of street artists and graff writers continue to flood the streets looking for walls. Walls! Walls! Here follows the gallery of artwork Charm City Streets unearthed this month in Baltimore.
Mateu Velasco of Urban Walls Brazil completed a large-scale mural featuring a flora fauna dreamscape at the Section 1 Project’s Creative Labs in the Clipper Mill Industrial Park.
As Charm City Streets reported the other day, Nether completed a new mural in support of the forthcoming Baltimore Rising art exhibition and panel discussion at MICA. In addition to the triptych, Nether crafted a large pair of hands holding a photo locket. After seeing this mixed media piece on N Howard Street, I think you will agree Nether’s experimentation with acrylic, aerosol, mirrored mylar, and plywood was a success. Around the corner on W Franklin is a roller piece by Nether.
Here you see Megan Lewis (@urbanhipsta) at work painting the latest mural at the White Barn, an art project curated by Yvonne Hardy-Phillips on the corner of Harford Avenue and E Biddle Street. Christopher Metzger, Gaia, Jessie Unterhalter, and Katey Truhn are among the other artists who have contributed to this project.
On the corner of N Fulton Avenue and W Lanvale Street, artists Ali Duggan, David Cunningham and Brandon Buckson are working on two large-scale murals.
Wire sculptor Reed Bmore bent, twisted, and shaped two sensational pieces: an elaborate Class Favorite Underdog and Hustle a windshield washer kid.
In the Bromo Arts District, the Station North Arts District, and West Baltimore, Charm City Streets discovered recent burners and bangers by such renowned graffiti writers as Arbor, Later, Meca, Stab, Stoe, Userp, and more. Even graff artist OiLRiG (aka SKeRoK) from Chicago left his art mark on Baltimore this month.
