Street Artists bringing Beauty and Life to the Bronx

The Riverdale Press has a feature about two artists collaborating on street art as a shining example of the impact pubic beautification can have in the Bronx.

The two artists, Jose Serrano and Carlos Perez, aka Base and Styler, are using the Hiciano Grocery and Deli in Kingsbridge as their own canvas. These two Bronxites, who always wanted to paint but never had the opportunity because of conservative parents, took over a wall on Bailey Avenue and created a vibrant, large mural.

The “dynamic duo” started their crafts by visiting street art by legendary artists who popularized the art form like Lee Quinones, Tracy 168, and Blade. They say they developed their own legitimacy from middle school art classes. Also, Base began working as a mentee in a tattoo shop which gave him more passion for creating murals and tattoos. Today he’s the owner of his own tattoo business on Fort Independence Street.

According to the Press, Styler and Base are looking to expand their vision by engaging female artists because they believe art should be expressed from various points of view.
