33 Powerful Black Lives Matter Murals #ArtTuesday

Street art is art. Cities have become canvases for murals that express the rage, pain, hope, and yearning of Black Lives Matter. Here’s more from The Verge:

First, boards covered businesses in New York and Oakland. Then, so did art. Graffiti artists, muralists, and others, including artists who’d never before put up large-scale works — famous and not — used the boards as blank canvases. Memorials to George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, as well as others who were killed by police, graced many walls; another way of saying Black Lives Matter. Other art included calls to defund the police, poems, and expressions of all kinds. Some neighborhoods became ersatz outdoor galleries, often empty of the usual crowds, unless protesters passed through.

The Verge’s staff was impressed by the art, so a couple photographers took pictures of the works. Where possible, we’ve credited the artists. We’ve also talked to a few of them to get their perspective on their art. In some cases, we didn’t hear back from artists before publish, so we have only included their Instagram handle. If you recognize the art, and we don’t have the artist’s name, please contact us! We want to make sure everyone gets credit for their work.
