More Paint!

When I found this in Graffiti Alley, I had a good chuckle.

I mean how much more paint until the walls from each side touch?

Paint over paint, some neat, some not.

Below, is a beautiful face I posted November 2017. I call her “Blue Eyes”. Check her out! Just another piece to move to R.I.P. I guess the artist with the red and white paint knows their paint is better.

Sometimes the artists paint over all the tags and throw ups with black, then do fresh art on top.

Many of the artists who paint & write here are very talented.

Others are ________(fill in the blank)

Graffiti Alley is a bit of a misnomer. It’s actually a series of alleys and lanes, that go for longer than most can walk. I only shot a few pics of it, so you could get an idea.

Uber 5000 is an artist who frequents the alleys. I’ll be doing an individual post for the mural of the chicks above. His chicks and other animals survive the taggers. 

So does most of Elicsr’s work. Both have become in demand artists for murals, underpasses and private commissions. 

Some of the more amazing writing survives time.

Most of this will all be rewritten, tagged or adorned with fresh throw ups in a week.

Love the RatFink by the trash! He’s going to live on for a bit.

I keep hoping for a major rework of this wall below.

From the sublime to the ridiculous, ALL are allowed a visual voice in Graffiti Alley. Art here comes in the form of tags, throw ups, bits, pieces, writing and all out seriousness.

I discovered Graffiti Alley in 2012. This is one of the first pieces I shot, a stunning face by Jarus, and SKAM writing, together.

She was my first header, ever. This work still survives, as does a few Uber 5000 works. There is at least 1 other that I can think of.
