Street Art Revolution
Our ‘revolution’, is to change the paradigm of what is considered art in this community. Beauty comes in many different forms and uses endless mediums. Our goal is to eradicate the misconception that ‘street art’ is bad by exposing new viewers to the varied gifted artists that this city envelops. It is this combined dynamic that caused the artist collective to choose the name ‘Street Art Revolution’. Some of the most prolific artists in Palm Beach County will not be found in upscale galleries; so to make their voices heard, they seek to turn bland local walls into entrancing masterpieces. Our mission is to give them both a platform and an audience.

The members of the collective consist of Dahlia Perryman, Anthony Hernandez, Eduardo Mendieta, and Caron Bowman. The program invites one or two local artists per season (fall, winter, spring, and summer) according to wall availability.


Past & Present Murals  

 

Letting Go by Mayling Pao & Bulks
"Letting Go" by Mayling Pao & Bulks

Narrative of the Mural:
The bright, bold colored, mural that brightens up the Respectable Street wall is a collaboration between established artists Bulks & Mayling Pao. The mural depicts two figures – a female releasing a dove in the tangles of her hair, representing our everyday struggles, and the other, a celestial being creating the day and night while resting on a mountain. The image illustrates a "still shot" of a person's imagination, a place where the mind wanders, explores curiosities, and a glimpse of worry.
