HYPEBEAST has teamed up with The Compound, a creative studio located in the birthplace of hip-hop, New York City, on Compound Conversations, a series of interviews in a surreal space curated by Set Free. In this latest episode, they talk to the esteemed “Godfather of Street Art,” Ron English, on the relative cultural isolation of his childhood in the Midwest, his first exposure to the art world, and the moment where it occurred to him that his art could go anywhere, legally or not.
The walls of lower Manhattan were recently brought to life thanks to The LoMan Arts Festival, New York City’s first-ever mural festival. The event’s inaugural year brought large-scale works by acclaimed mural artists to 21 lower Manhattan neighborhoods, from 23rd Street to the South Street Seaport, in celebration of art that is public, permanent, and accessible to all.
The LoMan Art Festival will take place August 5 - August 9 of 2015. Over two dozen of the best mural artists from all over the world will paint as many large-scale murals in Lower Manhattan, from 23rd Street to the South Street Seaport, from East Side to West Side . Most of these artists will come from a background in street art, both local and international, with a track record of big and bold work. Ten days before the festival, the artists will work on site-specific installations through out Lower Manhattan.
