Artist: Ninja Picasso
Title: “Read all about it”
How were you contacted to create this piece?
I created a mural proposal and reached out to Community Journals.
What is the inspiration for this piece?
I asked myself what organizations keep the community informed and aware of the art scene in Greenville. Community Journals plays a huge part in that. I thought it was fitting to bring back the “paperboys” with a Banksy style. Banksy is one of my influences as a graffiti artist, it was a great way to pay homage in my city.
What materials did you use to create this mural?
I used spray paint, oil and acrylic paints.
How long did it take to create?
It took three days to complete.
What was the creation process like?
It was challenging, but mostly because of the heat.
What is your favorite part of the piece and why?
My favorite part would be the iPhone section. You have these 1940s paperboys examining something that would change for them in the future.
When was it completed?
It was completed on July 20, 2020
Location: 581 Perry Ave., Greenville.
