About Graffiti Mural Trolls
This interactive collaboration by Rhode Island mural artist PFunk and BIG NAZO featured the 2D mural paired with original, human-powered Graffiti Mural Trolls fabricated by BIG NAZO. As moving elements within the mural, the trolls activated the wall and the space in the Cultural Corridor at the September 25 “Rock the Block” event hosted by New Urban Arts.
“Every character I paint is different. The process is different. I might style on the guy’s shoe and then work up, or I might style on his hand and work up. It could be an eyebrow and I work off of that.” –PFunk
