It’s official…the artists for the India Street Mural Project (Facebook page) have been announced!
Here’s a blurb about each artist and their intended mural. Work begins June 1 (all via the North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition & Joanne Kim):
Ali Aschman, Seascape
Inhabited by characters inspired by mythology and the artist’s own imagination, Aschman’s Seascape reflects the site’s close proximity to the East River and Newtown Creek.
Biddle and Frankel’s India Street Rocket presents a metaphor for celebration in uncertain times.
Joshua Abram Howard, Super Duper Sound System
Drawing inspiration from cultural objects and representations of Native Americans, Super Duper Sound System evokes the presence and history of hip-hop culture in Brooklyn.
Robert Seng, Knock Knock
In this mysterious and inviting interplay between the two walls that enclose India Street, Seng’s Knock Knock invites the viewer into a conversation about the doors that are sealed and those that remain hidden from view.
Skewville, Welcome to Greenpoint
Chris Soria, American Monster
Soria’s proposal chronicles Greenpoint’s history of abandoned industry by amalgamating independent moments of the iconic American Manufacturing Company (AKA the Brooklyn Terminal Market).
