The infamous El Mac recently went over to New York City where he teamed up with artist Celso Gonzalez to paint another giant mural. The duo work side by side creating a beautiful portrait piece on the streets of Harlem.
Infamous street artist Faith47 finished a mural in earlier this week in East Harlem on the entitled “Estamos Todos Los Que Cabemos.” The piece was a part of MonumentArt, presented by the La Marqueta Retoña Initiative. The beautiful new wall depicts birds flying around in a circle which is said to be symbolism relating to current immigration situations.
Born in Harlem, NY Kip Omolade began his art career as a graffiti artist while interning at Marvel Comics and The Center for African Art. He continued his studies at The Art Students League of New York and earned a BFA at the School of Visual Arts. His paintings have been featured in exhibitions throughout the East Coast.
To be honest, we’re not really huge fans of this Harlem Shake movement. But hey, you’ve got to be some sort of nut (or group of nuts) to paint a commuter train and then return to the scene to make a viral dance video about it. We give these cats major props.
“This piece is about removing people from their terrestrial urban experience and placing them, for just a few moments, at the zenith of the over and the nadir of the under, which is to say, above the clouds and below the sea. As the bookends of our natural environment are smushed together, we can’t help but realize we live in between these two extremes, where the For Rent signage is…” – Eric Corriel
