Graffiti in Austin

5 04 2011

My friend Sonya took me on a tour of the graffiti walls (some are called “permission” walls, some aren’t) in Austin. This is a shot of one section of a warehouse that we believe is one of the “permission walls” on the south side of town. Permission walls are meant to encourage artistic expression and (hopefully) deter graffiti in other areas. Wonder if it has cut down on graffiti on private property or “non-permission” walls? I’ll post more images from our graffiti shoot, including one of an artist in action (we asked his permission to photograph him), armed with a huge box of spray paint cans in the back of his SUV.
