Streetart: Wall Dogs of New York – Portrait of Mural Painters (Clip)

wall_dogs_of_newyork_01

Schönes Portrait über die Muralisten (i like this one!) “Colossal Media”, die in New York (der vermutlich most expressive city, was Billboards und Kram betrifft) den perfekten Platz für Ihre “always handmade” Riesen-Murals sehen. Man nennt diese Art von Künstler auch “Wall Dogs”, in diesem Portrait geht es um Jason Coatney und Armando Balmaceda, die im verschneiten New York von ihrer Leidenschaft erzählen und ein paar Einblicke in Ihre Arbeit gebieten. Eine Doku aus der Tumblr’s Storyboard-Reihe, biddeschöyn:

“Climbers’ ropes secured around their torsos, Jason Coatney and Armando Balmaceda stand in a melange of open paint cans and brushes. These two muralists of Colossal Media, the largest hand-painted advertising company in America, are heavily layered in sweatshirts and raincoats. But in this industry, c’est la vie. Paintbrushes in their fingerless-gloved hands, earbuds in their ears — “I like to start out with Miles Davis in the morning,” Coatney smiles, his breath visible in the frigid air — they begin yet another workday in the sky.”
