In Queens, The Art Explodes! Welling Court Mural Project 2012

The Welling Court Mural Project curated by Ad Hoc Art had its third block party excitement on Saturday and it was another amazing day of excitement and paint.  I was there starting from around 11:30/11:45 A.M and lasted till almost night fall.  During that time I hung with new friends, old friends, dogs, children, grandmas, artists of all ilks, but no cats.

For this year’s fest I decided I would really try to get three sets of photos.  One that showed the conceptual sketch of the work, an in progress shot and as close to finished as the artist got before I left.

First up is Chris RWK of Robots Will Kill.  He worked on a wall section with VENG Smith and GILF in a theme of Polar Ice caps melting.


Here is his sketch.                                                                                                                                    A Progress shot.

Another progress shot.                                                                                                                         The Final Piece.

Next up is Fumero who seemed to be embracing combining his two artistic visual styles into one amazingly powerful image.


Here is his original concept piece.                                                                                                    Fumero coming to a close on his mural.

This large progress shot is developed from two photos.

Next up is RRobots doing something a little different than what he’s best known for.


This is his original sketch.                                                                   You see that chair guy didn’t make it to the wall, but muscle dude did.


Here you have the final where you can see that the chair made it in the end, but muscle dude got a new hair style.

Next up is Australia’s Stormie Mills.


Original sketch.                                                                                                                                         Progress shot.

The finished piece.                                                                                                              For historical purposes/reflections, Stormie’s piece in 2010, same spot.

Here’s a collabo piece between The YOK, NEVER and SHERYO.


This a sketch NEVER set up of ideas for the collab.                                                                 A skeleton progress shot.

Sheryo adding layers.                                                                                                                           The finished mural.

This is a good place to end this feature article with a promise of more to come, as the folder of Welling Court 2012 photos counts at 200+.
