Block Party Mini is another painting inspired by my strolls through the hood and is part of my neighborhood series. I am having so much fun with this series and also really enjoy making multiple versions on different substrates.
The combination of classic row house architecture and a colorful contemporary mural is something that is not uncommon in this city – and I am a fan of it. In this scene a wonderful mural by @zoonchez (on instagram) depicts a festive block party, you can almost hear the old skool hip hop (maybe Sugarhill Gang’s Rapper’s Delight?) and get a feel for the vibe.
There will be a dessert place coming soon in the storefront and boy I cannot wait :)
“Block Party Mini” is an original painting made with spray paint, markers, acrylic paint, gouache, and stencils on canvas board and measures 8″x8″ and available now in my store! EDITED: SOLD
