“World Peace Mural Tour” Comes to Boston for The 4th of July

East Boston, MA: The World Peace Mural Tour will make its way to Boston for a special 4th of July Independence Day installation of a “Handwritten Mural” by renowned Miami artist, Renda Writer. The artist will install a “World Peace” mural on the main exterior wall of Iglesias Bautista Sendas de Fe in East Boston (316 East Meridian St., Boston, MA 02128) on July 4th, starting at 10am. The mural will include the phrase “WORD PEACE” spray-painted repetitiously, in a patriotic mix of red, white, and blue. For more details, check the World Peace Mural Tour Facebook Event.

Boston is the first stop on the “World Peace Mural Tour.” The five-city tour will make its way to Detroit in late July and will then head back East to create murals in Philadelphia and Washington DC in August and New York in September.

The World Peace Mural Tour is an artistic campaign and an ongoing art installation project aimed at enacting worldwide change through the power of the written word and the energy behind the widely popular and influential medium of public art. More information about the tour can be found at...

As a self-described “Handwritten Artist,” the creator of the World Peace Mural Tour is Renda Writer, an artist known and praised for creating large scale Handwritten Murals that are consistently popular as viral social media sensations and continually attract mainstream and independent media attention.  

Renda Writer wrote “Black Lives Matter” over 2,000 times, on a 40ft x 40ft wall in Midtown Detroit at N'Namdi Center For Contemporary Art in September of 2015, which landed him an interview on the 5 O’clock News on FOX 2 Detroit.

Do it anyway.” almost 500,000 times on a wall in Miami’s famed Miami Wynwood Art District during the immensely popular yearly international art event, Art Basel.
