Visual Artists Anthony Hernandez, Eduardo Mendieta, Bulks, Paul Hughes and Mayling Pao have joined forces to create The Jam, a street art mural located on Clematis. This mural is the latest installment of Street Art Revolution’s Mural Program, and immortalizes five music greats who have passed away. They include: Prince, David Bowie, Bob Marley, MCA and Kurt Cobain. Artists are combining spray paint and hand brushwork to create the beautiful masterpiece.

 

Palm Beach County residents are invited to watch the mural take shape Nov. 11-18. The Jam is located at 518 Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach on the Respectable Street wall- one of the city’s most iconic mural walls. Caron Bowman, curator for Street Art Revolution, says, “This mural collaboration showcases a variety of visual art talent in Palm Beach County… ensuring a presence of local artists in Downtown West Palm Beach, and connect[s] local artists with the local community.” This mural is the third mural hosted by the Street Art Revolution collective.

Street Art Revolution is a partnership between local artists, West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority and Sub Culture Group. The mission of their mural program is for West Palm Beach to become an arts destination of choice by highlighting the idea that “beauty comes in many different forms and uses endless mediums.” Bowman says. Since its inception, Street Art Revolution mural installments have received “such a warm reception from the community.” Bowman says. Accordingly, the collective plans to paint murals throughout the county in the near future.
