Wordless Wednesday | Atlanta Street Art







Wordless Wednesday is supposed to be about posting a photo(s) without any words. But, I'm a rule breaker, so here are a few words:

1 - One of the upsides of Hurricane Irma was evacuating to Atlanta, Georgia to stay with some friends of ours. We got to explore the city and see some of the fun and funky street art scattered about.

2 - We saw great street art in our walks around Atlanta.

3 - Some of it it might be considered graffiti by some, others might call it art.

   
What words does this picture(s) bring to your mind when you look at it?

  2. The artwork I like. The graffiti I don't. I think gangs and we have a lot of gangs here.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

    1. Funny, I didn't originally think of gangs. But now that you mention it I'm curious about gang activity in Atlanta.

    1. Some of it's creative, some of it has me scratching my head wondering what it's all about.

  4. Sometimes I can't figure the signatures of the artists and I wonder if that's intentional, or just really bad handwriting. ;)

    1. Kind of like my signature - no one can tell what it says :-)

  5. LOL to Crystal's comment! I feel the same way about custom license plates. I never know what they say.

    1. Me too on the custom license plates. I have to try to sound them out but still don't get a lot of them.

  6. Don’t like the gang tags, but the first one is cool.

    1. The first one is really cool :-) I wonder how long it took to do.

  7. There are certainly some talented artist out there.

  8. The murals are fun and add an enjoyable touch, but graffiti detracts from the appearance of an area. Sad thing is, some of the hoodlums who deface property with their tags and scribbles might actually be good artists.

    1. That's true - there may be a lot of good artists behind some of it.

  9. Ooh. This makes me realize how much I appreciate artistic work in many venues. That someone pointed out Bender in one of the scenes makes me smile. I realize that cluttered art overwhelms me just like the menus at fast food restaurants. Ugh. Be well!

    1. I'm really glad Alex mentioned it was Bender - I knew I recognized it, but couldn't figure out from where.

  10. Such talented artists...and there where it is needed most.

    1. I think you have to be really talented to use spray paint and make such cool paintings. It seems hard to me.

  11. Painting something creative is art, I think, whereas someone spraying the same tag on every available surface is not. There was always great street art in Brighton, where I grew up. I remember one scene had the actual front end of a car attached to the wall and the rest of the car painted in behind it to make a 3D effect. Pretty cool!
