Mosstika Urban Greenery is a NYC based collective of eco-minded street artists, using gorilla tactics to evoke the call of man back to nature. We believe that if everyone had a garden of their own to cultivate, we would have a much more balanced relation to our territories. It is with this notion in mind, that we at Mosstika, aim to collide the worlds of art and nature, creating havens of unexpected greenery, within the colder harsher environment. Together we aim to give green guerrilla tactics a new twist by creating works meant to be touched, in turn aiming to touch the souls of all that pass by. We strive to call back to mind a more playful existence, returning man to nature, even among the barren patches of urban existence.

Remember that Gil Scott-Heron was a musical mastermind, one of the first to do what he did, and without him, Jay-Z and Kanye probably would not exist. But more importantly, remember that Gil Scott-Heron was a powerful political and social critic. We should listen closely to his lyrics, for they contain truths that should enlighten and motivate us to action.
The mural is a depiction of the eye of Booker T. Washington High School. It represents the life of the building through my eyes. This amazing place is in its dying days. It will soon be consumed by giant wrecking balls and will be reduced to a pile of bricks and wood. The only thing that will be left of Booker T., will be the countless memories that its former students and teachers hold. This video is a testament to the life of an important piece of New Orleans’ history, a history that needs to live on long after Booker T. is gone.
