Photographed on August 21, 2017, just minutes before the wall was whitewashed to make way for new art. (The vertical blue and yellow tinting is from the sun shining through a stained glass awning over the alleyway). Artist unknown.
Modica Way in Cambridge is host to all types of street art: murals, graffiti, stenciled messages promoting social justice and other political causes, and the sort. Once in a while, though, there’s something totally off the wall on the wall, such as this cuckoo crank flyer by “Johnny War – Master Artist” proclaiming that “Trump Is A Dream” and other cryptic messages. These is no sense in trying to make sense of this nonsense.
Boston-based MerkThose is a regular contributor to the wall at Modica Way, Cambridge’s “Graffiti Alley”. Here are some start-to-finish progress shots from a piece he did in November of 2016.
