WHAT’S UP ON CHARM CITY STREETS

Headlining today’s post … In memory of Vandel

Seemingly, Daver and Siek can hardly wait to see the Bad Birds of Baltimore take to the field on Opening Day 2017. O say can you see that Daver and Siek have hit back-to-back home runs! 

BENEATH THE STREETS, MARCH 2017

Last month, Charm City Streets posted several articles featuring off-street street art: burners, pieces, tags, and more uncovered in storm water channels, under highway overpasses, along the tracks, inside tunnels, and at other off-road sites.

Last weekend, while on family business in Cincinnati, Charm City Streets managed to carve a few hours free from the schedule. With camera in hand, the first destination was the water channel on the east side of town.

Acclaimed writers Ichabod, Arek, Mast, and Jurne created an outstanding back to back piece in the Station North Arts District. It is fitting that artist Bob Ross from the celebrated PBS show The Joy of Painting commands a central role in the piece.

Episode 2 takes you off-road once again and ventures beneath the streets in search of out-of-sight graffiti. Charm City Streets trusts you will enjoy the phat artwork, but keep an eye out for Morloks in these shadowy tunnels and secluded underpasses.

BENEATH – EPISODE 1

Over the past five years Charm City Streets has taken you on regular photo tours of art in public spaces. We have visited Baltimore’s neighborhoods; the DC Metropolitan area; Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan; Miami; parts of the Midwest and Pacific Northwest; and, even Germany. Together we have walked hundreds of miles up and down city streets and alleyways; watched artists live painting during art festivals, mural projects, and paint jams; and, explored abandoned buildings such as a Cold War spy station in Berlin, Germany. Along the way we have encountered incredible graffiti writers and street artists.

ABANDONED ART

Headlining today’s post … up on the roof with Userp

Abandoned and derelict buildings possess character, project a unique atmosphere, and assure graffiti writers and urban explorers alike an irresistible sense of adventure.

Over the past few months Charm City Streets has encountered spectacular graffiti in a variety of vacant sites. Please note that a physical visit to these dilapidated buildings requires care. Falling beams could squish you. A rotted floor could suddenly give way beneath you. Plus, there is danger of entrapment and myriad other unpleasant incidents.
