NYC GRAFFITI: SECRET WALLS, PT.2

Here are some more images from yesterday’s team battle in Little Italy. This time, documented with a Canon. There are various shots of Mishka’s Club and Team Lowbrow. You’ll find that there are probably more of Meres One than anyone else and it’s simply because I’m a big fan and I first saw his lightbulbs out in L.A. There are a couple poignant pics of him putting up a 5 Pointz logo. Save 5 Pointz!

SECRET WALLS NYC: MISHKA’S CLUB vs. LOWBROW

What is Secret Walls?

Secret Walls (formerly Secret Wars) is the World’s premier live art battle. Working in a similar way to Fight Club, Secret Walls battles are set up and promoted through word of mouth & social media.

Battles take place between 2 individuals, or 2 teams of artists.

Secret Walls began back in 2006 in a small bar in East London, it was small, and intimate yet had the potential to be so much more. Years of hard work, dedication and a strong following has meant Secret Walls has pushed the boundaries and raised the bar for artists and promoters alike on an international stage.

Boasting experience in major cities including NYC, London, Lisbon, Berlin, Tokyo, Copenhagen, Dublin and Amsterdam, proves and many more, proves that there really isn’t a stage big enough for the groundbreaking and award-winning event.

Terry Guy, founder of Secret Walls wasn’t content with carrying on with the same original one on one concept. Always wanting to push the limits and give the public something bigger and better, he decided to make it his mission to create a global competition that would be recognised as the Super Bowl of live art shows!

Secret Walls offers young and aspiring artists a creative platform – allowing them a chance to showcase their work on a global scale, gaining the recognition they deserve. excerpt from ~

The following series of mostly Team Lowbrow, was documented while experimenting with the different films from Hipstmatic:

Team Lowbrow, then one of me with a Meres One portion of the Secret Wall and one with me and the street art documenting queen, Martha Cooper:

N.Y.C. STREET ART: BOY SENT TO HIS ROOM by MERES ONE

Here is my last post from 5 Pointz this time around and possibly forever, as a developer is intending to demolish the warehouse and build luxury condominiums. I feel quite fortunate to have gotten there in time to document the current pieces.

I basically saved the best for last, in my opinion, as it is a unique 3-Dimensional piece by, I believe, New York graffiti legend Meres One. The boy in the mural is wearing a t-shirt donning Meres’ signature lightbulb logo, so I am assuming. Unless, it is an homage to Meres from another artist.

Regardless, I like this piece because it appears that the boy is in trouble and has been sent to his room early in the day, most likely by his mother (note the ironic poster of #1 Mom on his wall.) The room represented is very typical adolescent boy-esque, equipped with a fish tank, bookshelves, and other odds and ends. What stands out the most to me is his desk, which pours out of the wall onto a significant amount of ground space. You can see a steaming bowl of soup, a stapler, lamp, and pencil strewn atop it. I just love it. Enjoy the final 5 Pointz pictorial that I have to offer:
