More street art in Memphis. This is off Highland on the strip where Newbys used to be.
I really can’t figure out who did it but I like it
Another great find. This mural is on McLean and York area. The mural goes under a railroad track and it cover the whole length of bridge and it is on both sides. The hard part was trying to get the whole this in one shot, even I had a wide angle lens it didn’t happen.
Here is a part of it but the whole thing its pretty neat.
This is a little crazy. I have a crazy love for graffiti, don’t know why. One thing people talk about its the fact that it can be vandalism, that its not art and that its disrespectful.
There is a guy in Memphis that has done some really neat street art around town and I actually like his stuff.
Nosey42, he has some massive murals in Memphis, like the one on Whatever’s wall on Highland and Southern.
I can agree with some about it being vandalism if it is some type of gang tag but to me some of the stuff I have seen are a little more like art. What do you think?
You can identify his stuff for the signature 42 on every piece he does. The piece on the picture is on a huge graffiti wall in Midtown, on Cooper and Walker, it is completely cover by different artist.
You know how I do this. Be good and make a difference
So I got a pleasant surprise a couple of weeks ago. Went downtown to the Zombie Walk and ran into Ira Hill…
He had a huge american flag and it had graffiti all over it. I couldn’t go by it without asking about it. We talked about a project he has been doing to get people to express themselves and going around the country having people writing it on a flag was a way to do it.
One of the things I learned about Ira was that he was using this as a way to get people to practice their Freedom of Speech right. It was really neat to see the flag with all kinds of stuff on it…”can’t live in a better country” “Have a nice day” and lots of random cartoon like drawings.
