The murals that surface at First Street Green Art Park — under the curatorial direction of Jonathan Neville — continue to represent an intriguingly diverse range of artists with varied sensibilities and styles. The image featured above was recently painted by the wonderfully talented Colombian artist Toxicómano Callejero, whom I had first met in Bogota over a decade ago. What follows are several more murals that have made their way to First Street Green Art Park since this past spring:
Fumero with an optimistic message
Miami-based Chilean artist Claudio Picasso aka CP WON
Mexican artist Victor “MARKA27” Quinonez
First Street Green Art Park is located between Houston and First Street off the F train’s Second Avenue stop.
