India Street Mural Project Artists Announced!

Panel juries met last week and have chosen 6 artists for the India Street Mural Project. One winner, Ali Aschman was recently showing at Parlour. Each proposal provides a fresh and different perspective that incorporates community with an artists’ style and practice. I’m especially looking forward to Eve Biddle & Joshua Frankel’s rocket mural.

Artists start June 1st and there will be an opening weekend plus parties and events in July.

Here’s a sneak peek:

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.

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.

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).
