Brooklyn Street Art

…loves you more every day.

R.I.P. MAURICE BERNARD SENDAK (June 10, 1928 – May 8, 2012)

Posted on May 8, 2012

Veng and Chris of the art collective RWK worked two days (18 hours) back in September of 2009 to complete a brand new piece in which they paid tribute to the children’s book “Where the Wild Things Are”, by Maurice Sendak, published in 1963.

Produced by Brooklyn Street Art, this was a concept they had wanted to paint for a while and their selected scene is a composite of both their painting styles and a few of the scenes in the book. The influential children’s book had figured strongly into the lives of these two artists, as well as many kids over the last 50 years.

We would like to pay tribute to Mr. Sendak and share a couple of images from the mural and a video of the process of making the mural.
