Brooklyn’s “Murals for the Movement” seems to connect people

Brooklyn, NY (WABC)-Artists working on two large murals in Brooklyn talk about why they influenced these works of art.

“The street is our museum,” said Victor Quiñones.

Canvas is the wall of the city. The mural is on your face and is large and conspicuous. That’s the point, and that’s why Victor Quiñones participates in the movement’s murals.

“We wanted to tell a story on the wall. The murals really support the community in which we reflect ourselves,” Kinones said.

His work is called “Returning to the Essence of Brooklyn” and reflects the diaspora. Stephanie Farmer is thrilled to see in the neighborhood.

“Show who we are-Spanish, black … that’s why we have a community,” said resident Stephanie Farmer.

Another work is by Cey Adams. It is called “love”.

“The idea is that we’re out of the pandemic. I wanted to create something that was uplifting, bright, and pleasing to people,” he said.

With bright colors it does exactly that. The mural project began last year after George Floyd’s death.
The goal is to create dialogue and provide a platform for underrated artists.

“Anyway, for me, it’s just a connection. It’s not necessarily a political statement, it’s just a way to connect people and connect people,” Adams said.

Each artist has a unique approach and a unique story.

“When you look at this mural, it feels like a lot of people are looking at themselves. Look at your children and family and see their beauty and black excellence. See a perspective that is rarely seen in public art. “Kinones said.

Murals for the Movement is one of 12 projects funded through the Downtown Brooklyn + Dumbo Art Fund, which will be open to the public from November 4th and will continue until spring.
