Block Party is a different take on a painting of this building and is inspired by my strolls through the hood. It is part also of my neighborhood series.
I created it with spray paint, markers, ink, and acrylic paint on canvas. You will often see the combination of classic row house architecture and a colorful contemporary mural in our city and I am big fan of that.
In this scene the mural 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.
I carried this energy throughout the piece in the bright colors and rhythmic patterns in the background.
“Block Party” is an original painting on canvas and measures 10″x8″ -It is available in the store and would love to find a new home.
