30 new graffiti murals to brighten downtown Everett

EVERETT — Two graffiti artists spray-painted the menacing face of a samurai Friday morning on the top corner of a wall on Rucker Avenue and Wall Street. In the opposite corner, two others began work on a dragon.

In just a few days, the team of artists will transform the plain gray wall into a 90-by-20-foot masterpiece: the warrior swinging a sword at the dragon with the artists’ signatures, called tags, in between.

The artwork is one of 30 going up in Everett as part of a four-day event, “Going All City NW.” About 150 graffiti artists from the United States and Mexico are painting murals through Sunday. They will brighten bland buildings, forgotten alleys and grungy carports. Walk downtown this weekend and you will likely hear the distinctive shake of a spray paint can.

The gathering is the “biggest event of this kind in Washington state history,” said event coordinator Brianna Mattes. Her husband, Hyper, is the event’s main organizer and creator of Everett’s graffiti murals.
