Centre-fuge is jumping New York Harbor, and will spread its street art gospel to the folks of Shaolin.

Currently between cycles at its East Village trailer space, the Centre-fuge Art Project continues to redefine itself with new endeavors, including the decoration of numerous containers and cement blocks along East Houston Street. Their next big step is to the outer borough of Staten Island (aka Richmond County), where the group will create the “Heart of the Art District.” The endeavor is a collaboration with the Staten Island Artist Building Corporation (SIABC), a cultural hub that “builds a stronger community by offering studio work space for creative minded individuals to create.”

Coordinates of the so-called art district are Wave and Bay Streets. Participating artists in Centre-fuge Shaolin include Kwue Molly, Matthew Denton Burrows, Chris RWK, Cram Concepts, Danielle Mastrion, Ratchi NYC, Col Wallnuts and Mr. Prvrt.
