Ever 6

The Monument Art Project has been underway in New York City and the murals produced are incredible! Located in the El Barrio and Bronx districts of the city, the project has brought in big artists like: Sego, Faith47, El Mac, ROA, Viajero, Luis R. Vidal, and shared here, Argentinian artist, Ever. The themes for the murals have¬†been about centered around Puerto Rican culture, local neighborhood histories, and immigration. Ever, in his signature vibrant kaleidoscopic style, painted this massive wall above a local park. The piece touches immigration, local history, cultural diversity, and the next generation. For image reference, Ever used a photo he took of a youth kid playing basketball next to the wall, and two photos of neighborhoods kids in the 1980s from Martha Cooper‘s archive.
