It was a very tasty day in Graffiti Alley.
Of course this is not Uber 5000. It is Doctor Evil.
However, he must have had something very tasty.
This is Uber 5000. I’m in the lift taking pics. I have a better one, but I’m saving it for when I do the actual post of the mural, which was in progress.
When Uber invited me up & in, I was thrilled beyond words. Then he said, “let’s see how high this goes!” WOW! We went up to the fourth story. There was some art I had only ever seen a sliver of from the ground.
Then he told me UV lights had been installed over his mural. That was why some of the colors seemed stronger than usual. This mural will glow in the dark. There are 2 more day-glow murals being installed in the city, and I know where they are.
I knew I had to leave him to his work. I snapped a few more new bits in Graffiti Alley on my way out, including Dr. Evil.
I felt blessed!

When I visited Uber 5000 website, I realized he had done a Jimi Hendrix mural I had covered. Click on Jimi’s pic to visit the post.
I will be updating the post, as I did not know who the artist was at that time. I will also be adding an Uber 5000 page to the “Artists” pages.
Never in my widest dreams did I think I would get to capture the above piece. Thank you, Uber 5000!

Now THAT was exciting! What an experience. Great shots and I’m so looking forward to more. Different perspective when you’re in the air, that’s for sue. Great post.
I’m still recovering from the excitement! I totally thought of you during this experience. I knew you would do what I did! No mace needed here!
I love it, especially the idea of the glow in the dark perspective, you need a night lense. 😉
Ah, a night lens. I hadn’t thought of it. I’ll look into it! 😀
It’s so cool when you get to meet the artist and get the inside scoop. Also, now I’m reminded to re-watch the Austin Powers movies. And Zoolander, just because I need to watch more comedies 🙂
It was very cool! Comedies are a great relaxing release. I like Bridesmaids, too! 😀 Working on the Sao Paulo post now 😀
Went to Uber 5000’s website – AWESOME! Meanwhile, Cheers to you going above on the lyft! … great work here!
I am still pumped from the experience. I need some time to work on my Artists Pages. 😀
Photos, meeting an artist and a lift adventure, impressive! The hidden mural was great, that sounds like exclusive access, I love it!
Yeah, I love it, too! 😀 I especially loved going up in the lift! 😀
Woo; how cool was that?!!!
Seems you are becoming well known by some fabulous artists. How special it all must have been. And you have the images as well. Super cool, I’d say.. 🙂
Yeah, it was Uber Cool!!!!! 😀 I’ve met almost 20 street artists at this point. I love it! 😀 xoxoxo
This graffiti artist is pure magic at his game.
Please, do take a picture of his glowing art at night. 🙂
I will take those pics, Charlie. I want to take the daytime pics as well! 😀
Okay. Please do. I want to see the night art glow. 🙂
So exciting Resa! You are living the life! I love the vivid street art that lights up even the darkest of places…wonderful photography Resa! 🙂

Jimi Hendrix, man. I’ve been listening to Hey Joe all week.
Love Hendrix! It was fab to find out that Uber 5000 is the artist.

It is awesome getting an opportunity like this; it only means this much to a person who is as passionate and interested in the artwork as the artist himself! The murals are beautiful; I love the colors and abstractive shapes that form the pictures. ❤
I adore street art and murals. This was a fun experience. Lol.. I’m almost a groupie. xx
