India Street Mural Project Artists Announced!

We are thrilled to announce the artists chosen for the India Street Mural Project!

The panel convened by Council Member David Yassky met this past Wednesday night to review the fantastic submissions and chose six local artists whose artistic visions captured the essence of the site as public art space, as well as the unique character of community.

A sneak peek at selected artists and their proposal:

Ali Aschman, Seascape

Inhabited by characters inspired by mythology and the artist’s own imagination, Aschman’s Seascape reflects the site’s close proximity to the East River and Newtown Creek.

Eve Biddle & Joshua Frankel, India Street Rocket

Biddle and Frankel’s India Street Rocket presents a metaphor for celebration in uncertain times.

Joshua Abram Howard, Super Duper Sound System

Drawing inspiration from cultural objects and representations of Native Americans, Super Duper Sound System evokes the presence and history of hip-hop culture in Brooklyn.

Robert Seng, Knock Knock

In this mysterious and inviting interplay between the two walls that enclose India Street, Seng’s Knock Knock invites the viewer into a conversation about the doors that are sealed and those that remain hidden from view.

Skewville, Welcome to Greenpoint

This Brooklyn collaborative’s goal is to unite local artists to promote Greenpoint.

Chris Soria, Antiquated Giant

Soria’s proposal chronicles Greenpoint’s history of abandoned industry by amalgamating independent moments of the iconic American Manufacturing Company (AKA the Brooklyn Terminal Market).

Artists will begin working June 1st and programming and events will begin after opening weekend in July.
