This is the final design that was chosen by the NYCDOT Urban Art program for their “Barrier Beautification” project. This will be a mural painted on traffic barriers that run along a bike path in the bronx. My design is inspired by many trips on the subway, and pushing through crowds on New York City streets. In using limited color, and simple graphic shapes I tried to capture how we all try to see whats going on around us, and at the same time be seen.
The site is located in the Bronx at Bruckner Boulevard, and Bryant Avenue. The design will span across a total of 9 barriers totaling to around 180 feet!
A big thanks to the DOT for commisioning my design, New York Cares for providing volunteers to help paint, my professor Dan Shefelman, and most importantly my mom. She was there painting with me all day.
