Carl Keita and Oluwatosin Adesanya-Olaleye Paint Juneteenth Mural at Highline Stages

By whitewall

June 19, 2020

In honor of Juneteenth, Alina Lundry’s Highline Stages has commissioned a special mural, completed yesterday in the Meatpacking district in New York. Coinciding with the commemoration of Freedom Day, the mural was created by two artists from the New York Academy of Art (NYAA), Carl Keita and Oluwatosin Adesanya-Olaleye.

Keita and Adesanya-Olaleye created four large-scale works that fill the windows of a building in the New York City neighborhood. Scenes include a figure with multiple faces, reminiscent of a cultural mask; and a pig intertwined with donuts. Keita is a draughtsman from Cote d’Ivoire, attending the academy’s MFA program, and Adesanya-Olaleye is a Nigerian-American painter and recent graduate, who was a recipient of the Mickalene Thomas Scholarship.
