The Pattern Magazine mural spans the corner of Davidson Street and Massachusetts Avenue and was designed and painted by 6Cents and Sacred317, a dynamic Indianapolis-based duo known nationwide as The Fantastic Aerosol Brothers or The FAB Crew. The mural was created to bring life to “the quiet end of Mass Ave” now that local businesses such as Yats, The Pattern Store, and Black Market are bringing more activity to this part of the Cultural Trail.
The Northern end of the mural features Indianapolis icon DJ Topspeed spinning records for a young lady pictured a block away. Described by 6Cents as a figment of his imagination, the figures are representative of the many unique characters 6Cents and Sacred317 have created over their 17 years together as a crew. Though both are trained in fine art and commercial design, graffiti art remains the driving force behind their creativity. The FAB Crew has been commissioned to create murals for Klipsch, the NFLPA, Hot Box Pizza, IndyGo (for whom they painted two buses), Red Bull, Pabst Blue Ribbon, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, as well as many others.
The mural required 7 gallons of primer, 6 gallons of green paint, 100 cans of spray paint, and about 150 hours to complete. Commissioned by Pattern Magazine, and paid for by a grant, it was conceived to be larger than life and intended to bring a measure of urban culture to the “forgotten end of Mass Ave.”
