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.

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.
