2022 Best Muralist

Rob “ProBlak” Gibbs

You’ve likely seen the larger-than-life work of this talented Roxbury-born muralist (and MFA artist in residence), who’s graced the walls of buildings around Grove Hall or Lower Roxbury over the years with his spectacular depictions of joyful Black youth. Now, as this year’s pick to paint the Greenway’s massive Dewey Square mural, he’s taken his iconic “Breathe Life” series downtown, to the city’s most-viewed, most-talked-about stage.
