WALL\THERAPY 2013

Actively seeking to integrate artists in the graffiti and street
art worlds, our muralists during the 2013 event included graffiti writers
active in NYC’s scene in the
70s and 80s, including Daze, Lady Pink, and Smith, who would be among the first
to bring
 this artform into the gallery world.
Other muralists were among the top 10 reknowned street artists working today as
well as more traditionally studio-based artists.

A History Lesson

In 2013, the majority of the murals were concentrated in two areas: North (El Camino Trail area) and South (South Wedge area). The Northern murals largely represented a look at the roots of traditional graffiti, including forebears from NYC, Brazil, and our own Rochester.

Commerce Moves Swifter Than Culture (2013-07-19/2013-07-28) by GaiaWALL\THERAPY

The New Breed

Moving south of downtown Rochester, the majority of the muralists working in and around the South Wedge neighborhood tended to be younger or local artists, many current leaders in the public mural movement.
