The Omari Hardwick bluapple Poetry Network utilizes the art of spoken word poetry to empower students across South Florida. These unique voices are amplified during bluapple’s annual teen poetry festival, Louder Than A Bomb Florida, and this past April, the Network asked Thunderous Genius Creative House to add visual dynamics to it’s 12-day competition. The Mural Battle was born!
Enhancing the LTABFLA’s Urban Art Show concept, TG transformed the FATVillage Art Alley into an all-day mural battle featuring an eclectic array of Postgraffism artists. Utilizing a myriad of styles, techniques and paint, back-alley walls were brought to life before poets, educators and curious onlookers, all of whom had a hand in determining the “winner” of the battle. The fusion of street art, poetry, a live DJ and interactive experience showcased the diverse influences that impact bluapple’s young poets daily.
