Our 'revolution', is to put a spotlight on local artist whilst providing the community with an authentic slice of West Palm Beach culture.

The term "Street Art" is defined as 'art created in public venues outside of traditionally sanctioned art galleries'. It is derived from the hip-hop and graffiti culture of the 1970's and 80's and was used to express the realities of everyday life. The art form was originally considered counter culture and was not always welcomed, as it was the antithesis to what was being seen in traditional galleries. However, non-traditional yet talented artists turned walls into canvas and spray cans into paintbrushes. While this art form has since become more mainstream and acceptable and can now actually be found in certain galleries, it still tends to 'shake up' the 'status quo'. The term 'revolution' means 'the sudden and radical change in a system or state of affairs.'

Mission Statement


Our 'revolution', is to change the paradigm of what is considered art in this community. Beauty comes in many different forms and uses endless mediums. Our goal is to eradicate the misconception that 'street art' is bad by exposing new viewers to the varied gifted artists that this city envelops. It is this combined dynamic that caused us to choose the name 'Street Art Revolution'. Some of the most prolific artists in Palm Beach County will not be found in upscale galleries so to make their voices heard they seek to turn bland local walls into entrancing masterpieces. Our mission is to give them both a platform and an audience

Street Art RevolutionKaleidoscope on the Square Northwood  Village 

Kaleidoscope on the Square is a 330 ft  fiber  public art  installation  on a fence surrounding the old gas station on the corner of Broadway and Northwood Road.  Because the land has to go through a fuel detoxification procedure before the land can be redeveloped, the WPB CRA wanted to use the space creatively and turn the gas station into an art installation. Street Art Revolution artist Eduardo Mendieta, Dahlia Perryman and Caron Bowman,  transformed the fence into a colorful woven geometric pattern that shows how diverse elements become one "a kaleidoscope of color", much like the community. Each colorful thread, represents the energy, spirit and creativity of the community. “Kaleidoscope on the Square” will be on display for a year when it will be replaced with a new art exhibit for the public to enjoy.   The project was sponsored by the West Palm Beach CRA .

Downtown West Palm Beach Mural Program

The program invites one or two local artists per season according to wall availability.

Integrating Disciplines 

The unveiling of each new mural should soon become a happening that draws people from all over the Palm Beach County, creating 'buzz and anticipation'. These unveilings may coincide with family-friendly performances of local singers, bands, dance troupes, musicians etc. 

Life is marked by community moments, gatherings, events, happenings…art  activity can be integrated, and part of that equation. Not segregated.”

Gerald Mead - Public Arts Commission.

The program is facilitated and developed by a community curato. The curator’s primary role is to facilitate all aspects of the program.

The Jam

Street Art Revolution: The Jam immortalizes 5 musical giants that have passed away, Prince, David Bowie, Bob Marley, MCA, and  Kurt Cobain. These  musicians penetrated culture beyond music, inspiring artist of all disciplines   and thus becoming cultural icons. The idea for the Mural Jam  is the brainchild of Anthony Hernandez and Eduardo Mendieta Street Art Revolution Collective artists. All five artists  (Anthony Hernandez, Eduardo Mendieta, Bulks, Paul Hughes  and Mayling Pao)combined styles and work practices to create the  portraits for the mural using both spray paint and hand brushwork.

Letting Go

Bulks and Mayling Pao. The mural is called “Letting Go” depicts two female figures: one releasing a dove, from the tangled strands of her hair. This is the visual representation of letting go of our everyday struggles. The second figure is a celestial being creating the day and night while resting on the mountain. The mural’s unveiling will be marked by the performance of 29 bands to celebrate the 29th anniversary of the Respectables Nightclub on September 10th.
