Beau Stanton in Little Italy

November 7th, 2013 | By | 2 Comments »

Ever since he helped out Ron English on Ron’s Little Italy mural, I’ve been hoping to see Beau Stanton‘s own work on Mulberry Street. This month, everything finally came together and Beau painted the above piece at Mulberry and Grand as part of The L.I.S.A. Project NYC. When we’re arranging murals for The L.I.S.A. Project, I particularly like when we can bring in something fresh that doesn’t totally leave the context of the area behind. With the neighborhood’s rich history of immigration, I think Beau’s mural is a perfect fit. I have to be honest though, this wall was entirely organized by Wayne Rada and Rey Rosa, with me watching jealously from the sidelines here in Philadelphia.

With the sketch in place, Beau can come back during the day to paint with proper lighting.
