Case Maclaim recently created a stunning mural titled 1Step in downtown New Rochelle, New York, that spans the Modera building, measuring 7,500 square feet. The artwork is a beautiful celebration of unity and diversity, brought to life with the Street Art for Mankind team, who produced and curated the project.
The mural features an intricate design of five hands, painted one behind the other, forming the movement of a single step. The hands, painted in the artist’s signature style, symbolise the collaboration and collective effort required to achieve a shared goal. The artwork is conceptual in nature and portrays people from different backgrounds coming together to build a bright and colourful future.
The piece is open to interpretation, with the viewer able to read it as one step, the first step, the next step, or even the last step. This feature adds a layer of complexity and depth to the artwork.
The mural 1Step not only serves as an impressive addition to the existing outdoor museum in downtown New Rochelle, which comprises of twenty-two large murals created by Street Art for Mankind, but also stands as a powerful reminder of how art can bring people together, promote positive change, and create a better world for all.
