A Pop (up) of Colour in Southwest

Atlanta based graffiti artist and muralist Alex “Hense” Brewer brought his spray paint and brushes to the district over the weekend. Known for his large (and npw often commissioned) murals and keen eye for colour, Hense painted over the entire exterior of the empty Friendship Baptist church at 700 Delaware Avenue in Southwest from October 4th-7th. The work was as part of a collaboration with the Art Whino gallery and coincided with the second (e)merge art fair, which was happening just around the corner at the Capitol Skyline Hotel

The work is a little bit off the beaten path but that part of the city is pretty grim so it was great seeing a bright pop of colour bringing a little cheer to the neighbourhood!
