Welling Court 2017

Welling Court Mural Project Daryll Peirce painting
I had the pleasure of joining my AdHoc Art friends and art compadres for the annual Welling Court Mural Project in Astoria, Queens, NYC. I enjoyed painting for the first one back in 2010 and finally got back there to join in on another round 7 years later!

It was a blast painting in the New York summer heat, welcoming the cool breezes coming off the East River with the Manhattan skyline at my back, neighborhood block party, skating, and reconnecting with friends and family I don't get to see very often these days.

All the previous murals get painted over each year so unfortunately I had to paint over this Elephant piece by Mike Makatron and Dirt Worship.

I swear I didn't sketch these to look like the figures were into some hot elephant sexy time.

Solid dude that Abe Lincoln Jr. Kids walking by asked him to paint their names so he put all their names up on the t-shirts of each of his characters on that roll up gate over there.
