To celebrate diversity and to create a unique live experience for its’ vibrant community and shoppers, Brookfield Properties partnered with Muros to activate a multi-weekend live painting arts program called Art At The Quarter with local artists at their Ballston Quarter property. All of the artists’ paintings were made available for sale through an online auction with all proceeds from the auction will benefit a local charitable organization in support of their programs and services that strengthen the heart of our community.
Week 1 featured artist Marlon Diggs!
Marlon Diggs is a self-taught artist from Newport News, VA. He began pursuing his passion for art as a child drawing everything from cartoons, comics, action figures and athletes. Drawing influences from his surroundings, he incorporates the ever-changing world of pop culture into his work, expressing his inner thoughts and experiences. These are captured through layers of bright bold colors and patterns coupled with popular and relevant images from his childhood which are utilized to express himself. His work is the perfect mix of two prolific genres of contemporary art; pop and urban street art and has successfully exhibited in major international markets including New York, Paris and Tokyo, to name a few.
