BLM Mural on Centre St. Painted By Tats Cru & Friends

Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer collaborated with the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs, WYX Architecture + Urban Design and The Mural Kings (Tats Cru) to make history this week with “Black Lives Matter” pavement mural in lower Manhattan, stretching across 12,500 square feet on Centre St.

While documenting behind the scenes near Foley Sq., I was honored to hit Tats Cru member, Nicer’s outline for a few strokes in front of New York County Supreme Court. It was a monumental moment to say the least. 

Connecting cultures and promoting safer environments. Tats Cru, BIO, BG183, NICER and Crash alongside twelve imaginative artists and their crew installed BLM mural. Artwork designed by artists Tijay Mohammed, creative director for the word ‘Black,’ Sophia Dawson creative director for the word ‘Lives,’ and Patrice Payne creative director for the word ‘Matter.’

I am very grateful, and inspired to be a part of this amazing experience.
