Over the weekend, a group of graffiti artists painted Boricua-themed pieces to kick off the annual Puerto Rico Day Parade festivities. The march may have started on 5th Avenue, but the celebrations spread throughout the city. Writers such as YES1, DARK, BIO, CRASH, RIBS, BG138, NICER, and ZIMAD descended on the walls (legally) at the corner of White and Moore Streets in Brooklyn to create the very loud and colorful public works of art. Like the parade, you didn’t have to be Puerto Rican to be able to enjoy and appreciate them.
