The mural concept is “Growth” represented by the sunflower. It is also depicts planting which is synonymous with planting seeds artistically and the neighborhood growth. I chose the sunflower because it represents light and positivity.
The mural was painted as part of an annual project for Isles Inc. The mural was painted live with Dj It’s Just Ahmad providing the soundtrack.
The Jersey Fresh Jam is New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop festival. Since 2005, it has grown from a small, humble event into one the most respected celebrations of Hip Hop culture on the east coast. At the twilight of every summer, aerosol artists from far and wide converge to adorn the walls of Terracycle INC with their signature masterpieces, while local and regionally known emcees, bands, and DJs provide the soundtrack for the days festivities.This event is free and open to the public. Come and share the excitement!

Last Weekend I participated in the Estria Battle NYC, in Brooklyn. At the Battle we all got this Graffiti Paper from Cresent Paper. They also used it for the James Top Blackbook Competition. I met the rep and she was very cool. I have worked with many papers and I was a bit skeptical about using spray paint and markers on it. I also use water color so lets throw that in. When I cracked the paper I noticed it was very smooth. I did two test pieces the results are:
(little bit of wrinkling normal with water color)
(took it like a champ some bubbling etc..from using different spray paints)
The Graffiti Paper Passed with Flying Colors!! Took whatever and came back for more !!Great Product!!
Trenton’s own Leon Rainbow and Rock Ya Body Artists along with Diffy Productions and Janets Weddings and Parties bring you the Black-light Graffiti Lounge. Modeled after the Black-light graffiti show Leon did at Artworks this lounge will also feature Leon’s ever so popular “Graf on Girls.” This time with an added bonus that everything will be painted in black-light reactive paint! Come by and check out the models or get your own body paint done. The installation will be available to check out during the full 24 hours of the festival with body painting taking place Saturday night shortly after nightfall.
