Lee Quinones & co. "Art in the Streets" Mural

After its removal of a controversial mural painted by Italian street artist Blu, the MOCA has commissioned another artist to cover the wall of its Geffen Contemporary gallery. This time around, they’ve chosen New York street artist and graffiti legend Lee Quinones, who is famous for his work on the New York City subway system in the 1970s. Acting as a creative director of sorts, Quinones has organized a team of street artists including Cern One, Push, Futura 2000, Sano, Risk and Loomit to do the mural, inviting each of them to bring their own ideas and imagery to the piece. While it’s still a work in progress, the mural is expected to be completed in time for the opening of the “Art in the Streets” exhibition at the Geffen on April 17.
