“It began as a practice wall where artists could refine their technique, but quickly exploded as words spread and artists as far from San Francisco began coming over to paint in Richmond. Blank walls are a rarity, and once a throw-up is painted, others will follow. And if the wall suggests a mosaic of styles, some more complex and outdoing others in skill and aesthetic, that’s because that was the intent.” Read the story on Richmond Pulse, and listen to the writer’s podcast on the subject, produced at the BAVC Youth Advocacy Bootcamp.
