Wall Mural by TATS CRU

The plaque reads:

TATS CRU The mural Kings est. 1980…TATS CRU is a group of New York City-based professional muralists whose work in aerosol has transformed and popularized the graffiti art movement. In the mid 80’s three teenagers began their artist careers by creating subway graffiti. What began as an adolescent hobby and recognition tactic has evolved into a powerful, expressively iconic style that has brought TATS CRU to the forefront of the mural industry. For over two decades TATS CRU has spearheaded the battle to change people’s perception of graffiti as an art form through their respected work. In addition to the recognition they receive throughout the world as leaders in the mural art industry, proof of TATS CRU’S success and the acceptance of graffiti as an art form can be found in their murals that adorn the walls of major corporations, museums, schools, and iconic New York City institutions.

On the roof

I saw a huge mural near a private home.

It just so happen that when I arrived, Mr. Keith was doing roof work so he allowed me to climb up the ladder and get a few pictures.

This one Stacy took. It is funny because it looks like the character in the mural is picking Mr. Keith and I up from the ladder.

One Time In New Orleans

I was told to take a photo of this wall mural but never saw it until we were in a taxi on the way to the station to leave. We had no time to stop the car and take a photo.

I texted all the people I met there and they texted me their versions of the mural….

Then about three days later, randomly, my mentor Casey texted me and we spoke about what we were doing for the summer.

I’m currently in New Orleans working on a project. She responded.

Really Casey? I just left!

We were so shocked that we both had ventured to the same city for the summer. I was extremely happy that she had texted me because I knew she would capture the imageĀ  in the look IĀ  was going for…and sure enough before she left, she sent me this photo of the wall mural.
