While many of the boards in Soho continue to be dismantled, the ones that remain continue to intrigue. And, happily, new ones surface — largely by artists who generally work in their studios — addressing a range of issues from systemic racism to transphobia. The socially-driven artworks featured above were fashioned a few weeks back by Brooklyn-based artist Jerardo Calixto in collaboration with Sofi Signs. Several more images captured earlier this week — several in progress — follow:
NYC-based Fabio Esteban with a message
Multidisciplinary artist Matthew Mazur — dedicated to “our Black Trans Brothers and Sisters who were taken from us too soon.”
Native Belarus artist Mitya Pisliak at work
Brooklyn-based, Czechoslovak-born Kamila Zmrzla Otcasek
On racism — signed Scott Woods
To be continued next week!
