Globetrotting artist 1010 recently made his way out to Michigan for the latest edition of Murals in the Market in Detroit’s Eastern Market.

Presented by Ironlak, this new video from Desk7 & Amit2.0 features some quick graffiti action from around North America. The duo hit up cities in the central parts of these countries such as Toronto, Montreal, Detroit and Chicago hitting up spots with some of our pals and other familiar faces.
We had a chance to head out to the Murals in the Market Festival last weekend, where we caught up with a number of incredible artists as well as the good people running the show. One of which, Jarus, was out there getting busy both creating his own work and helping out others.
In his latest mural, the Canadian born muralist painted another realistic aerosol portrait of a Detroit personality by the name of Willie “Bones” Hawkins. More posts from the festival on its way this week.
