Thanks to curator Keith Schweitzer for sending along this parting shot from South African artist Faith47. She took this photo last night after she finished the piece, titled “The Weight of Air” on E. 2nd Street. The mural is part of Fourth Arts Block public arts program. Schweitzer will be giving a free walking tour this evening of all the awesome public art projects they’ve done lately. For more info on that, go here.

Faith47 Creates New Mural on East 2nd Street

South African artist Faith47 transformed a section of East 2nd Street, near the Bowery yesterday.  It’s the latest project from MaNY and Fourth Arts Block (FAB).  Photographer Tim Schreier stopped by, as Faith47 was working on the mural, titled, “The Weight of Air.”   It’s part of an ongoing series curated by FAB’s Keith Schweitzer focused on creating temporary installations “in atypical locations” throughout the Lower East Side. Meanwhile, street artist Dal, Faith 47’s husband, was working on a project of his own yesterday outside the Rag and Bone store at Bowery and Elizabeth Street.
