I spent a couple of months walking through New York City taking photos of various mural arts. During COVID pandemic when every street echoes silence I walked around the city as a lonetraveler from another time and place. These images are small part of street art expression where artists painted on the boards put up to protect their businessesfrom looters and Black Lives Matter movements which engulfed the city with powerful sweep against injustice.Within the confines of limiting ways of self-expressionism artists boiled their energy by using their creative expressionismon these boards as their canvases. Regardless of backgrounds or beliefs, these expressions became ‘mural arts’ from simple doodle-like to more rich and vibrant one of a kind arts.In this book I chose photos from over 1000 images which I felt strongly depict those months.As a filmmaker I am currently making a documentary as well.It is my sincere hope that these photos will strike at the core of strange, dark times as well as allow your hearts toreveal and understand the meaning behind these expressionism through new artistic expressionism.These artists were inspired purely from their soul, expressing own frustrations, aggression through explosive energyto tell their stories on the mural space. I believe that 2020 has been a year where we saw fear, shut-downs and confinementbut I feel that human spirit will never lose sense of hope for the future. It is my hope that this book will provide artistic movement within you.
