This would qualify as hidden (or semi-hidden) art were it not for the scads and scads of people grabbing some of the only free parking in Five Points. The mural sits on the backside of The Treehouse Restaraunt. Treehouse opened in 2013 and quickly gained a solid reputation, though the mural didn’t appear until June 2015. Treehouse’s Instagram account credits the Brothers Collective made up of Joseph Copeland and Alic Brock. Brock is better known (at least in his artist persona) as Alic Daniel, and has been seen on this blog in Off the wall (Part 2). Hans seems to have deleted his Instagram and other accounts, and I haven’t been able to locate him. The scribbled lines are characteristic of Daniel. The rest, including Daniel Day-Lewis as Bill the Butcher and various presidents, I’m uncertain as to the contributor. It’s impossible, certainly without a fisheye lens, to get the whole mural into one shot. See below for the rest and for close-ups.
Located at 1011 Clearview Ave. Clearview is the narrow road not much bigger than an alley that is the fifth road in Five Points. The mural is on the back (north) side of the building, facing the alley. You are unlikely to get a clear view of the mural when Treehouse is open – your best bet is early in the morning. Free parking is available on Clearview and some neighboring streets, and there are numerous pay lots nearby.
