5 Pointz- Graffiti Mecca
Also known as Graffiti Mecca, this graffiti covered warehouse is “curated” by Meres One aka Jonathan Cohen. International graffiti artists from novice to well known are asked to paint the outside in an ever- evolving exhibition. The inside host shows and art studios, the complex is featured in many fashion shoots and music videos (recently Joss Stone). On any given day, one can find artists, b-boys, producers and musicians working in the complex. There’s always something going on at 5Pointz, and it is open to the public, weekends from 12-7 and weekdays by appointment.
