In it’s second edition the Open Walls Baltimore street art project curated by Gaia is fully underway in the heart of the Station North arts district in Baltimore, Maryland. With 14 artists included in this years line up each mural will support “community revitalization and national dialogue and attract visitors and investors to Station North.” While we saw Gaia's mural for the project last month here's a sweet new addition by Spanish artist Escif. Escif's work has a great wittiness to it and this large wall is no exception... not many people would think of "revitalizing" a wall with a bright yellow smiley face, which he surely pulled off. I just love how it stands out against the surrounding neighborhood, just a big ol' happy punch in the face.
