What’s up soccer legend Diego Armando Maradona? I spotted him last week on the side of the delicious Napoli Pasta Bar. [One of the club teams Maradona played for was Napoli.]

Yesterday Stacy was kind enough to send a bit of info about the artist:

“The piece was created by DC native Akeel Ali, also known as Black Frontiersmen, a local artist who has been working to beautify the neighborhood–and DC in general–with his art. His art can be seen on U Street and in Shaw, with more projects coming soon.” Read More

The mural honors Ellington’s deep ties to the U Street Corridor and sits near his childhood home. Ellington played his first paid performance in the auditorium of the True Reformer Building where the mural now hangs. Read More

Thanks to Daniel for sending: “This delightful new mural made my morning. It’s on the wall of Mister Rotisserie, a corner store and carry-out at Georgia and Park opposite the old Cadillacs Special lot.”

Thanks to Chuck Ludlam for sharing and sending renderings from artist Jarrett Ferrier:

“I’m leading the work to paint a fantastic mural on the huge white wall on the back side of the McDonalds. Right across from Johnson’s. It’s a celebration of Rock Creek Park — with Glover-Archbold Park right across the street. Painting of the mural will begin within a month or two.”
