Cedric Douglas, a Boston-based designer and street artist, aims to cultivate a more vibrant culture for street art in Boston through his latest project, Up Walls. Through Up Walls, Cedric is creating a constellation of street art murals and art walls throughout Boston and a mobile pop up art wall for cultural and community events. Art walls are public spaces designated (both formally and informally) for ongoing creative expression by street artists.

As of May 2016, one of Cedric’s Up Walls pieces can be found at 30 Leon Street, Boston MA 02115, on the exterior wall of Northeastern University’s Behrakis Health Sciences Center.
