Greetings from Coney Island! A postcard type mural by Megan Watters.
Here street art has been incorporated into the amusement park. Each year since 2015 , Coney Art Walls has added to their collection of murals and now has more than 60. Go when the park is open!
below: More of the Art Walls. The largest one in the photo is by Nina Chanel Abney. The one closest to the camera is ‘Handsome Brother and the Mermaid’ by Aiko which is based on an old Japanese tale called “Taro Urashima and Dragon Palace”.
below: Behind a chainlink fence, another Coney Island mural.
below: And yet another Coney Island mural, this one with old black and white photographs of New York City views inside the letters. The Statue of Liberty makes a great exclamation mark.
below: Although it is disappearing behind the ivy, this is yet another Coney Island mural.
below: Clown face and more faces. Live and let live – street artists against hate in the bottom right. And that blue guy? Have you seen how many teeth he has?!
below: Smell the flowers before they die and by the looks of it you don’t have long….
below: A jumble of strings and wires and a few found objects all wound up and made into a slightly human-like shape. Man is a mess?
below: The 5th, and last one here, Coney Island mural is the newest and the biggest. This is “Coney Is For Everyone” on Stilwell Avenue, painted by Danielle Mastrion. It was an Alliance for Coney Island project.
below: A blue Subway Doodle monster sleeps in front of Nathans on the boardwalk.
below: Another result of the Alliance for Coney Island efforts is this multicolour mural on the shutters that was painted by Ledania.
below: Lock him up! Donald Trump behind bars. Doesn’t he look cute in black and white stripes?
