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.

⭐️I MET UBER 5000 & HE TOOK ME UP IN HIS SCISSOR LIFT⭐️

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.

Uber 5000 at work

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!
