Street Art Becomes A Mural In Washington
For the past year Alec Kocher has been making a name for himself as a spray paint street artist with a cutting edge style.
Kocher, from Mansfield Township and a 2006 graduate of Warren Hills Regional High School, first came to the attention of the Washington Business Improvement District last April when he was one of many artists at the Warren County Arts Festival. That day, Kocher feverishly made one spray painting after another as demand was high for his works. In September, it was the same thing at the WBID's Festival in the Borough.
Following the Festival, Kocher was asked by the WBID if he would be interested in painting a mural on an empty store front. Kocher quickly accepted and by the end of October, his "Night & Day" mural was gracing the windows of 28 E. Washington Avenue.
