Sponsored by the Southeast Community Development Corporation, Nanook painted a new mural on the corner of Eastern Avenue and Grundy Street in Highlandtown. Nanook entitled the mural Frontera and explained it depicts a chain link fence over a nopal tuna cactus. The Águila is breaking through the chain link fence and faces a Trichocereus brevispinulosis which overlaps a cat scan of a human skull. On the far left is a bundle of steel that represents the fence before it became a violent tool.
Near the corner of 28th and Barclay Streets, Reed Bmore created a wire sculpture that portrays a not so charming frog prince.
Late in the month, Nether began a new mural inning at the Arabber stable on N Fremont Avenue. More about his mural in the next edition of What’s Up on Charm City Streets.
Artful comment by Gaia on the recent developments in the Freddie Gray trials:
MICA students enrolled in the Street Art 101 course continue to display their classwork in the Section 1 mural lot on the corner of Maryland and E Lafayette Avenues.
It comes as no surprise that such politically-inspired artwork as the devilish Donald and Hillary appears around the city.
Whether it was lazin’ on a Sunday afternoon or some weekday, there was new artwork by graff writers ABST, Daver, Decay, Noah, Spinz, and Thuro in East Baltimore, the Station North Arts District, and West Baltimore. In contrast to the hot summer weather, one writer is already thinking of Xmas.
Stay tuned for a separate article illustrating the development of the Henrietta Hicks/Johns Hopkins mural Gaia completed yesterday on the corner of Harford Rd and E Biddle St.
