Boston’s street art is hitting a growth spurt. Here’s the man behind it.

If it’s art, and it’s outdoors, Cedric Douglas either knows all about it — who made it, how it got there, and what it means — or he put it there himself.
Last year, Douglas turned a bland wall at Northeastern University’s Behrakis Health Sciences Center into an explosion of colors and shapes, with a giant Tyrannosaurus rex at the heart of the mural. The project was part of the school’s public art initiative launched in 2014. Douglas also took dozens of people unfamiliar with street art on citywide tours of murals that are hiding in plain sight.
