Back in January, we told you about a graffiti project done by Puerto Rican tagger Edwin David Sepúlveda, who goes by the name Rimx, and photographer Alex Seel, taking Brooklyn localites and immortalizing them on neighborhood walls. The project, titled “16 Barras,” was three portraits deep back then. But now, two months later, the-16-portrait-16-mural-16-word-one-poem urban collection has been completed. The result is a unifying message, taking what comprises a community (the bodega owners, the poets, the kids on the corner) and giving them a space to be connected with.
