It is said April showers bring flowers. I am not a horticulturist, but I can say the warm weather certainly brought about an explosion of crazy fresh graff and murals all around town. Here follows the artwork Charm City Streets came across during the second half of the month.

Weather records show that the first week of January was Baltimore’s coldest start to any year over the past 140+ years. In a word – bbbrrrrrr! Few folks ventured outside. Fortunately, things warmed up enough to entice artists, writers, and this photographer back outdoors.

High above the Penn North neighborhood Richie Rich is in a precarious position from which he seemingly cannot escape. Sculptor Reed Bmore has been busy gracing Philly and Richmond with his wire art, but fortunate for us he found time to create this thought-provoking sculpture for his home town.

City walls are arguably the most common place to find graffiti – everything from hand styles, to burners, to masterpieces. However, graffiti writers and artists also make use of such off the beaten path locations as tunnels, highway underpasses, abandoned buildings, and more.

ABANDONED ART

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.
