Here we go! After days of planning and developing their own characters, our young artists are diving in to the mural experience here in the East Village! Hailing from Central America, many have faced great struggles in their young lives, but their resilience is evident as they create an artistic monument for the whole city to experience. @artolution @kj3t @joelartista @theremustbemorelight @weareroyale @supportkind @styledwithsubstance #asylumseekers #immigrantart #muralart #communityart #youthempowerment #eastvillage #les #joelartista #youthpower #artolution #centroamerica
