Graffiti artists paint for Bernie Sanders
Bronx, New York – Along the Major Deegan Expressway, in the shadow of Yankee Stadium, a small team of respected graffiti art veterans joined up to show their support for the Vermont senator and hopeful presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. The crowdfunded 120’ long x 3 stories high mural production was organized by Garrison Buxton and Alan Ket, and designed by Noah McDonough.
The diverse lineup of artists are: Garrison Buxton, Ces, DOC Tc5, Ewok One, John Fekner, Ket, Noah McDonough, Queen Andrea, Part One, Python, and Rath. The reason behind the art? “Bringing attention to Bernie Sanders during the New York primary so that he can win the nomination for the Democratic party. It is crucial to have a candidate that supports working people and is a voice of reason in this critical time in human history. Climate change, fossil fuels, and the destruction of the planet are but some of the issues he brings to light in a healthy and progressive manner,” states Alan Ket. “He is a once in a lifetime candidate and this is a once in a lifetime moment. Sanders has a lot of love and support coming his way and we wanted to show him in a big shout-out from the Bronx to all of NY and beyond.” voiced Garrison Buxton.
