living walls day 6

47

here we are, hanging out with the kids on georgia avenue. i got to do that for a day, during the run up to a braves game. the walls attracted a lot of attention, all of it positive.

this is know hope, i finally learned his name. and he’s doing birds.

72

and this is marcy starz and somebody else, i’m not sure who but i’ll find out.

67

see that limo? everybody said it had some famous rap star i forget who in it. they were showing up for the braves game but no doubt snapped a picture or two of our great walls.

70

the helpers, valiantly braving the heat to give the artists water and lunch. in this case, pizza from grant central pizza.

69

this is the famous half naked french artist that all the neighbors come to see. doesn’t even know he’s famous.

71

did you know that spray paint gets dangerously over-pressurized when the cans get warm? and that taggers and wall artists tend to keep the cans in coolers on hot days, on ice. we brought some coolers around with ice for some of the artists, and it seems it was a little too late, because the stuff blew up inside the cooler. can’t take it back now.

65

these are all the four sides of that one building i was talking about, the one you can see from the nosebleed seats (maybe). well, that’s gold paint around it, and there they are drawing in the lines with a brush.

68

and for an encore, they drew a picture of the very lift they used to paint with, or actually a scissors life, the one around the corner i was so afraid would fall off the edge and go crashing down. but it didn’t. yay.

66

and this is trek matthews and his assistant, and they are well harnessed and clipped, so they are now safe. trek’s wall is absolutely enormous, and he’s been in a lift for most of his time on his wall.
