It was a real pleasure to have NoseGo from Philly visit us in Jersey City, NJ the other weekend and a great way to continue our Savage Habbit murals project endeavor. Creatively inspired by the nonsense in his mind he blessed our local community with this thrilling new 35′ mural featuring everything that we love and have come to know as “NoseGo!” With his cored out bright sliced “thing” sandwiching the encapsulated shark in motion, it looks like it’s just running right off the wall… which way? that-a-way!
It’s a fun flowing adventurous piece done in an unorthodox style, as evident if you follow along the progress shots on our Flickr and in this awesome video made by Serringe from Element Tree of NoseGo doing his magic thing. Enjoy!
We will use large, uncommissioned street art pieces to expose and publicize vacant and derilict housing and the parties responsible for its conditions. The pieces aim to draw attention to specific properties whose owners have the means to improve the vacants but haven’t. Art installations will span across Baltimore’s 14 districts. Next to the pieces, we will incorporate QR codes that link to online data (on the Slumlord Watch website), from which community members may learn about the housing and safety code violations on the property and about the owner responsible for the property’s decline. In addition to the QR codes, on the doors of the properties we will post text detailing the specific property violations and ownership information. Diving deeper into the issue, we will be joining forces with filmmakers whose film is being made to stimulate a conversation between community members and artists on the issue of Baltimore’s overwhelming vacancy problem. The ultimate objective is to increase community, government, and public pressure to remedy the problem of vacant property in Baltimore City while promoting and recording the reaction of many individuals to street art aimed at visual improvement of vacant properties and general public benefit.
