Nothing beats a simple bowl of noodles made with love ! This is the first installment of @ChinatownMuralProject. Rabbit and Tiger are the first zodiac animals we are featuring here. Look closely and you will find empire state building in the vase, a peach and a carrot hidden in the window decorations.
#ChinatownMuralProject is a collaboration between activist Karlin Chan and artist Peach Tao. Together, we are installing whimsical and humorous murals that are culturally reflective to Chinatown, that locals and visitors alike can relate to in and around the Manhattan Chinatown area. Karlin Chan secures walls with the landlords. Artist Peach Tao submits designs. Once approved we start painting on-site on agreed upon dates.
The goal :
The colorful murals are brightening up the neighborhoods, creating photogenic spots in hopes of drawing people into the Chinatown area which has been hit hard by the pandemic through Art for Recovery. They also help Increasing foot traffic to help support local businesses.
