The NycArtsCypher is an official 501c3 Non-profit organization. The mission is to promote positive values through arts and entertainment programs, projects, and events. The MURAL documentary is based on the creation of the NycArtsCypher's graffiti arts program of the same name.
Follow the NETWORK-PERFORM-EXCEL formula as various teens (ages 13 to 19) from the north and south shore of Staten Island get to explore the art form controversially known as Graffiti. Veteran graffiti artists from all over NYC, and local community figures state their case on the art vs vandalism issue.
The NycArtsCypher establishes its multimedia networking facility as an outlet that provides a safe environment for young artists to practice their art responsibly. These participants are shown Blackbook, aerosol, and brush techniques, learn history, and street rules. Then they get to do their own thing.
Watch as the kids "Get Bizzy" and prove that graffiti art can be positive.
