The sun now completely covered by grey clouds has given us some much desired cool down time on our third day here in Atlanta for the Living Walls Conference. After last nights block party in the Edgewood neighborhood where a large crowd congregated in front of Roti’s wall for a hazy late night of celebration in the streets, we wouldn’t be surprised if everyone had a more sluggish start than usual today.

On our second day in Atlanta for the Living Walls Conference, we walked out of our hotel straight into the beautiful Piedmont Park, which is as pristine and well-manicured a public park can get. From there we caught up with some more wall action, first checking out Agostino Lacurci’s vibrant painting of a character sitting in a chair accompanied by four masked dogs. Then we saw Jaz’s first mural painted for the conference: a stunning piece involving bulls around a fire in the woods, creating a serene but dark overall ambiance.

On our first day in Atlanta aka The ATL, Hotlanta or A-Town, we toured around to some of the walls checking out the muralists as they endure the summer heat and lay some paint down. First we got to view some walls by famed-photographer, JR that had been done the week prior before the conference kicked off. After that we caught up with 3ttman as he worked on a massive wall packed full of playful and vibrant colored imagery. Then we saw walls from Inti, Jaz, Know Hope and Roti in collaboration with Jaz. Our night ended at a” mansion party” and in true southern style, it had the largest porch we have had the opportunity to loiter on! Check back tomorrow for more updates!

Graffiti // Thursday, January 17, 2013
Bold, big and dripping in chrome. One of the exterior walls of the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center now loudly displays the letters of local graffiti writer, Hense’s name backwards. Atlanta has had a number of issues regarding public murals and what’s deemed appropriate in the last year, so it’s nice to see a contemporary institution support the work of a graffiti writer.

Sexy renderings of scantily clad, costumed vixens from Atlanta, GA based artist and illustrator Keith P. Rein. You can't really go wrong with simplicity in illustration, wood-grain backgrounds, a gorgeous female figure, nudity, some donuts and a head-dress, am I right or am I right??
