Painted Walls

I remember reading that back in the 70s the widespread graffiti in NYC was responsible for keeping the steel bridges and other public structures from rusting. Even still, graffiti artists were viewed as trespassers and vandals. While it has become much more mainstream as an art form, it is still a fringe form - a personal expression in a public space - often provocative, larger than life and colorful. Thank you to the artists whose work I have a captured at the Foundation – River Arts District - Asheville, NC.
