To celebrate Mtn Dew's arrival in Houston for Dew NBA 3X, an elite 3x3 basketball tournament, Green Label is taking part in #CourtsideCollection, a celebration of the art, creativity, and culture of basketball.
As part of #CourtsideCollection, Green Label is rehabilitating and beautifying a series of basketball courts in partnership with celebrated local artists. The fifth in the series, Houston, was painted by local graffiti artist Wiley, who took his famous ‘LOVE’ murals to a YMCA basketball court in Humble, a Houston suburb.”
Graffiti artist Wiley is brightening the streets of Houston. Not afraid of color, Wiley’s cartoonish collages come with a myriad of subjects and themes—from ‘90s TV show characters to flowers and fruit. He oftentimes uses “love” as a trademark message to uplift his onlookers.
While wall murals are most common in his portfolio, Wiley also uses stickers, free hand spray paint graffiti, stencils, marker tags, wheat pastes, hand painted 2 x 4s, sometimes even combining mediums to devise innovative pieces.
An adventurous spirit fuels his experimental approach, as Wiley’s Instagram feed is filled with photos from his travels across the US.
Green Label tapped Wiley for its #CourtsideCollection: Houston stop, where he transformed and beautified a community basketball court into a functional art piece to backdrop pick-up and team games for years to come.
