New Basketball Court Murals created in Yonkers NY

This project started in summer 2015. I really was wanting to work on outside materials to see how my art work would translate. At the same time I wanted to do something for a community. I was approached by a community center in Yonkers Ny that was interested in letting me work on a blank canvas. The rapper Jadakiss had donated funds to create a new basketball court for the center, so that was going to be my blank canvas. What I wanted to do was to incorporate the kids that attend the center and make them into larger than life characters. It started photographing the kids during their basketball summer league. I had to wait til the fall to actually start work on the murals. With a break during the snowy season, I soon completed the murals in early March. Here are all of the art pieces that span the entire basketball court.
