As part of our One Year Anniversary, Imurj,  the Triangle’s art and music venue and incubator located in downtown Raleigh in the Warehouse District, is featuring the work of graphic illustrator and muralist Chris Pyrate.  Chris will be painting at Imurj starting on Saturday, June 30th. Some past clients of his include Grammy Award winning artists Lupe Fiasco & Ghostface Kilah. Most recently, he released a sold out apparel collection with Enemies Forever in Washington DC. His work is already on the street in locations such as Brooklyn & the West Village in NYC and Wynwood in Miami, and Imurj is proud to feature his work on our own walls just outside our main entrance! His work can be found at www.chrispyrate.com


Imurj is described as a collaborative music and art community center.  This passion-project from co-founders, Heather Burns and Karl Thor, is a place for all musicians, artists, teachers, and patrons to create, perform and engage in art. Imurj’s objective is to strengthen the local art community by providing an incubator for local talent, from amateur to professional, with cross-fertilization between performance and visual artistic mediums. Imurj’s 6000 square foot space located at 300 S. McDowell St in downtown Raleigh’s warehouse district (underneath the Whiskey Kitchen) houses well-equipped music and video production studios, as well as a café/bar with a stage for live performances, demonstrations, lectures, and seminars.
