Scores of urban artists from across several generations took part in Ad Hoc Art’s 6th Annual Welling Court Mural Project this weekend. Located in Astoria, Queens, the walls stretch for blocks and feature a diverse array of talent, such as Abe Lincoln, Jr., AM, Bishop203, Chris RWK, Chris Stain, Col Wallnuts, Dan Witz, Ellis Gallagher, FREE5, Greg Lamarche, Icy & Sot, JC, Jaime Hef, LADY PINK, MARE139, MAST, MERES One, PANIC, PYTHON, Queen Andrea, R. Nicholas Kuszyk, KINGBEE, Royce, Rubin415, Russell King, See One, Sinned, Sonni, TooFly, Veng RWK, WANE COD, ZIMAD and so many more.
The project, that hopes to create “visual experiences which change how people experience and interact with their environment,” began in 2009 after the community invited Ad Hoc to beautify their neighborhood and continues to grow with each passing year. Check out all the murals in the gallery above.
