The wall behind Fat Sandwich (see yesterday's post). If you click on the picture and enlarge it, you will see a man sitting behind the wall.

Its amazing to think someone created that painting with a spray can. It is a beautiful art form when done with permission.

Do you think this was a commissioned piece or simply vandalism?

Lois have you been out tagging again? If so, you're pretty good!

Jacob, it's neither. That wall and many around it are simply open for painting. They are regularly redone by different artists, but no one commissions the work.

Actually, this appears to be mostly doodles, and not up to the caliber of much of the art in the area. Behind this wall is a cleared out alley where people hang out and sometimes music and art gatherings are held. Homeless guys use it as a home base as well.

Thanks for answering Jacob for me downtown guy. I figured that was the case. I work at FSU with a lot of art students and they said the same thing. I just like looking at it!

Well, it's all better than I can do - I'm a stencil man myself.

It's definitely colorful and better than I could do!

Great graffiti! Our compound fence has that kind of artwork to outsmart the graffiti vandals. I saw a man's back!
