Continuing our coverage from the fifth annual Living Walls Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, we catch up on a number of artist’s working on their murals, with some ambitious participants taking on a second wall. Over the last few days many of the artists have been working directly in the stifling sun with no shade, but each have found ways to combat the heat (Most successfully being Fintan Magee regularly running through playground sprinklers!).

On our first day in Atlanta for the Living Walls Conference we did what we always do, hit the streets to see what all the artists are working on. We started by riding a bike around to check everything out, but quickly abandoned the sweltering humidity combined with a whole lot of sweat and jumped at the opportunity to ride in a nice air-conditioned automobile to scope everything (Thanks Ben!).

We have featured the sculptural and performance-style works of NYC-based Aakash Nihalani in the print edition and web version of Juxtapoz over the years, and he just sent us images from his new project, Landline. He says of the new work, "In these new outdoor works, colorful bars pass through individuals, connecting them to each other and functioning as extensions of the urban landscape. The participants examine their own insides and connections, a visual expression of both the isolation and community I often feel living in Brooklyn. We spend so much time existing in virtual reality, these works are a visible connection to the real world."
