Born in Juarex, Mexico and raised in Dallas, Texas, Marka27’s foray into the art world began in the city’s streets mastering the art of graffiti. Advancing to earn his BFA from The Museum School of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts, Marka27 became a household name for his “audio canvas” series and elaborately executed installation art and murals. Largely inspired by multi cultural influences, Marka27’s art has served as a reflection of his varying interests. Beginning with iconic musical (and specifically hip-hop) figures, Marka27’s passion to infuse empathy into his art gave way to birthing magnificent and politically-charged masterpieces, some of which still grace both Boston, New York and Los Angeles’ city walls today, as well as San Francisco, Montreal, Canada, Mexico City and Monterrey, Mexico. His murals and artwork have been published in several books including Graffiti L.A, Burning New York, and Graffiti Planet.
Back for its 2nd installment, the Underground Mural Project returns to bring together the very best in street art, music, diversity and community to Underground at Ink Block, an epicenter of culture and creativity nestled between the South End and South Boston neighborhoods of Boston.
From June 24th– June 29th 2019, The Underground Mural Project will gather and celebrate creative do-ers, local, national, and internationally renowned street artists, and local taste makers through a week of arts programming, education, one-of-a-kind activations and a block party that celebrates a blossoming City of arts and culture. The Underground Mural Project is curated by Street Theory in partnership with National Development.
