On my walk to Graffiti Alley, I spotted this beauteous paste-up in a window.
Pasted on the inside, you can see the glue around the edges.
I adore all of the rich details.
Lo and behold, there was the beauty, again, in Graffiti Alley. I had just finished shooting what I posted yesterday.
Again, pasted-up, this time on what seems a mud cloth pattern.
There’s more art along this wall, but I’m skipping to the end of the alley. I make a right turn, into a scaffold tunnel. It’s mostly filled with writing, and there’s not enough space to back up and photo each piece.
In this narrow tunnel, I find the beauty, again. However, this time it’s a totally new version of the paste-up.
I squished in some angled shots, as there was no room to back up for a dead on.
Someone painted George Floyd. Someone painted Jamal Francique. Someone painted Zianna Oliphant. Many painted “I can’t breathe”.I wanted to start this series with a portrait of Martin Luther King Jr. In the end I decided to reveal my experience from the beginning, as I discovered this multitude of art and messages.
I entered Graffiti Alley from the west end. I was greeted by a mural of Malcom X.
“You don’t have to be a man to fight for freedom. All you have to do is to be an intelligent human being.”
After having basked in this fabulous mural for a long time, I head east into the alley.
“Breonna Taylor – Say Her Name”
This is Part One (There’s just way too, much for 1 post!)
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!
