WHAT’S UP ON CHARM CITY STREETS

Headlining today’s post … Cellar Dwellers by subterranean Stoe

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.

In Sowebo, thanks to the talented Motor and Adam Stab, there is dope new graffiti honoring the original Southside Slayer crew. Local resident Lydia poses in front of Stab’s piece to draw attention to her SFNS (straight face no smile) tattoo which Stab incorporated into the artwork.

Wire sculptor Reed Bmore fashioned new artwork: one features the delightful character from the children’s book Harold and the purple crayon (by Crockett Johnson); and, the second sculpture implies sooner or later love is gonna hit you … like an anvil. Ouch! Reed’s piece entitled Hustle still hangs above N Howard Street. It displays a young enterprising roadside windshield washer.

Charm City Streets encountered multiple burners and chromies by Jekel, Meca, Stoe, and Userp. Given the proliferation of his dope pieces seemingly everywhere, Userp could soon earn an all-city title.

Streamside, tunnels, and underpasses, oh my! Not only did the unseasonably warm weather entice many more artists outside than usual during February, it also permitted Charm City Streets to discover artwork in a variety of off the beaten trail locations. Here follows artwork by Arek, Cedar, Krone, Later, Walter and others, including a cool scene Tank7 first photographed.

Be sure to catch the recent artwork by @chrissmith410, Osirus, Voke, West and others in Graffiti Alley. The bunnies by New York-based artist Jules Muck are still active in the alley, so hurry over and see them before someone disses or buffs them.
