Children inspired new mural at South Bronx building
SOUTH BRONX — There is a new backdrop for playtime at the Barrier Free Living Apartment in the South Bronx. Renowned graffiti artist John “Crash” Matos is one of two painters behind a new mural for the building. Ninety families live at the site, many with children. Matos says the children helped inspire his work, “I sat down with 6 or 7 of them and I told them that we were planning to do a mural and I want some ideas.”
