This week on Instagram: problak

Rob “Problak” Gibbs is a Roxbury native, who has been transforming Boston neighborhoods with graffiti art since the early 1990s. Earlier this summer I featured his mural, Breathe Life 2, a continuation of the image shared above in this post, Urban artistry of Rob “ProBlak” Gibbs, Breathe Life 2.

If you’re looking to add artists to your Instagram feed, I’d encourage you to check out this accomplished artist who earlier this year was approached by the Museum of Fine Arts Boston to team up – a first I believe for the museum to collaborate with a local artist of color.

Below is a piece Gibbs did for the Underground at the Ink Block park – a favorite park of Sergio and mine that is under the Interstate in the South End.
