Spring Has Sprung in Modica Way | Boston Street Artists

On the first Saturday of warm spring weather, the artists are out in droves at Modica Way, Cambridge’s Graffiti Alley. One crew left immediately after whitewashing part of the wall…. were they coming back later to do a new piece? Or do they just not like Marisa Kang? They covered her piece that she had painted the day before, which in and of itself is not unusual here as pieces often get painted over even on the same day that they went up, but to just cover it and run? Weird.

One Hundred Years of Solitude Mural by Daniel Anguilu at Northeastern University campus

This mural is just too large to capture in a photograph, so here is a video panorama of the “One Hundred Years of Solitude” mural by Daniel Anguilu, on a pedestrian ramp at the Northeastern University Campus.

From the plaque on the mural:

Angiulu began painting at an early age. The abstract shapes, animal imagery, and vibrant colors in his art are deeply inspired by his Mexican heritage. In the bold, sweeping lines of this piece, he sought to capture the movement and rhythm of pedestrians as they walk across campus, as well as to pay homage to the renowned author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who died shortly before this commission.
