In celebration of Yonkers Arts Weekend beginning tomorrow, May 1, and continuing through Sunday, May 3, several new murals will grace Downtown Yonkers. Among these is the wonderfully vibrant one curated by Wall Works NY. Here are a few more images we captured on a brilliantly sunny day earlier this week:

A perfect tribute to the revitalization of Downtown Yonkers, the mural is located at 45 Main Street near Getty Square and Broadway.

Chris Ellis aka Daze

Back in the 70’s, Daze’s main canvasses were subway trains and walls. Recognized as a master of his genre, Brooklyn native Chris “Daze” Ellis was soon showing his work in galleries. Since, he has exhibited in museums and galleries across the globe, while continuing to share his talents with us on the streets.  Through next Sunday, January 19th, a selection of Daze’s new paintings, sculptures and prints are on exhibit at TT-Underground, 91 Second Avenue, in the East Village. Here are a few more images from Indigo Dreams:

The weather was glorious yesterday as the huge wall on Drake Street in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx served as a canvas for some of NYC most famed writers, along with their guests, including the legendary DJ Goldie in from the UK.  Here are some images from the day:

An early master of the graffiti movement, Daze’s first pieces surfaced on the walls and trains of NYC in the late 1970’s. Since, his artwork has been exhibited internationally and can be found in the permanent collections of museums around the world. Yet, Daze still gets up in the streets, where his work was recently spotted in the South Bronx and in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
