Graffiti Masters CRASH & DAZE Create New Mega Mural in Little Italy!

Legendary graffiti artists John CRASH Matos and Chris DAZE Ellis have recently finished their collaborative mural in Little Italy sponsored by The L.I.S.A. Project and the Museum of the City of New York.  The exhibit co-insides with the closing of the "City As Canvas" mega-exhibit curated by Sean Cocoran featuring the Martin Wong collection.   

The two artists began painting trains in the late 70's and later transformed to the galleries and museums around the world where they continuously show today.  The L.I.S.A. Project (Little Italy Street Art), continues to showcase the most talented local and international artists around the walls, buildings and doors throughout Little Italy and expanding beyond.    

I took over one hundred photos of the process, but a few like these below will give you a decent look from beginning to end, which is an "ode to the end of summer."
