Full mural wrap by Australian artist MEGGS
 right here at the Nation's Capital!



Art Whino is pleased to announce the second phase in a very special project at 700 Delaware Ave. completed by Australian artist MEGGS. With a style characterized by bold and energetic paint splatters that give way to a sense of movement in his underlying realistic imagery, MEGGS brings life and color to the second floor of this massive interior space.  This new work follows HENSE’s first intervention and colossal undertaking of a full building mural wrap on the exterior of the 10,000sqft building in the SW corridor. Just a short walk from Nationals Park and the Capital Skyline Hotel the work of these two artists infuse color and vibrancy to the thriving SW community.
