WELLINGCOURT MURAL PROJECT RE-CAP!

Hello World!!! — I’m back from my summer travels and catching up on my blog posts. This summer was hectic, hardly had any leisure time but the small breaks I took made up for it. My first mission as soon as I arrived to NY was to rock a fresh new wall at Wellingcourt Mural Project in Astoria Queens. I decided this year that I will begin to document the painting process as a time lapse to bring a little more fun to the project. I touched base with my friends Serge, and Fubz at MOTIONGRAFF who worked on a stop motion video for me a while back entitled; STAY FLY Episode 22 – We had a lot of fun then and was excited to hear they were down to shoot the Wellingcourt wall with their friend Stephen. Luckily this year there was no rain in the forecast so we worked for 2 full days under the hot sun. I enjoyed building with Stephen he’s such a cool guy!!! Very professional and loves what he does. The energy was on point and the best part is we had fun during the process. The video looks awesome!!! I love the music they chose, and how the edits came out. THANK YOU GUYS <3 and thank you Alice and Garrison for keeping the family style street art community event alive year after year. Especially these days when all other events are turning into corporate media takeovers, and hipster trash parties. The work on the walls of our ever changing city is to bring communities together, locals together, and to enjoy the chill summer vibe where kids can run around and hang out with the big kids. Ā It’s not about corporate media piggy backing off our work and hipsters getting drunk and making a mess of our hood. Authenticity is not for sale, so back the f**K up! Our neighborhoods are going through a tough change with all these greedy mofo’s who have no respect for our people and hoods. Watching the change of my beloved city year after year is sad, but many of us ain’t going down like that. We’re warriors of this shit
