Project M, the street art project behind the three-story RONE mural we covered earlier this week, recently commissioned a group of emerging and established international artists — from the renowned Ron English to the rising painter Erik Jones — to create mural-scale window installations below the aforementioned mural. While Ron English created two windows that brim with the cacophony of characters we recently saw in his solo show at Corey Helford Gallery, Israeli street artist Know Hope created a textured, collage-like work and Erik Jones opted for loud, abstracted portraiture. Sandra Chevrier and Crajes’s works both drew from the creators’ love of comics, but while Crajes’s monochromatic works reference Anime, Chevrier’s portraits remix classic superhero comics with their feminine imagery. Henrik Haven went behind-the-scenes as the installations neared completion. Take a look at his photos below.
