It may seem like murals pop-up overnight, but they require a great deal of time, planning and patience. They also contain a great deal of secret wonder. Much of the base work artists use to establish the mural is covered up by the final product. If you’re vigilant — you can catch an artist at work. That allows you to peer into their process and see the “mural under the mural.”
This week, we popped by East Town Market to find Georgie Nakima expanding a mural she created last year. If you act fast, you may just get there in time to watch her work, ask her questions (mask up, though, please) and witness her work expand from the initial spray-painted lines to her multi-colored geometric style. Read more about her mural process and methodology here.
If you don’t get there in time, you will still find an incredible piece of public art AND you can swing by BW Sweets for a treat. It’s just around the corner from the mural.[TIP: The mural is just down from Compare Foods on the N. Sharon Amity Side.]
