Calligrapher Ian Staber “Unity” Mural in Modica Way

On a beautiful Saturday morning in November 2016, a group of artists gather in Cambridge’s Graffiti Alley to put up a large unity-themed mural. This was the centerpiece for the mural that covered almost the entire length of the alley.

A black backdrop was thrown up over existing tags before the artists got to work on the day’s project:

There were 8 different artists working all at once, including Merk Those (chibi-eye girl and toucan), Angelonce of LA (angry pink elephants), Ian Staber (calligraphy), and others who did not freely divulge their names.
