Street artists and graffiti writers from New York City, Rochester, St. Louis and Oklahoma City to international painters from Brazil, Ecuador and Australia all joined AD Hoc this year from different generations. Visit the area and you will find immaculate street art - paintings and stencils to true old school graffiti murals that can be viewed 365 days a year, no doubt with something for everyone. This year we saw many returning artists and newcomers to Welling Court including Billy Mode, Rubin, Joe Iurato, Alice Mizrachi, Louie KR1 Gasparro, Mr. PRVT, SPOne, Toofly, Damien Mitchell, Seeone, Col, Cern, Estaban Del Valle, Icy & Sot, Rodney "Panic" Rodriguez, Pyramid Oracle, Eyez, Russell King, Royce, Raquel Echanique, Vera Times, Lexi Bella & Danielle Mastrion and Herb Smith - just a name a few.
See my extensive photos of the artists in progress from day one up to the finished pieces --and a few scenes from the block party. Of course, like last years' blog from Welling Court I will be doing few posts, that's how much there is to see. You can view all of the finished art on several blocks beginning at 30th Avenue / Welling Court, a 10-15 minute walk from the N, Q MTA stop at 30th Avenue. Wind up and down the blocks to see it all!
