City Paint Phoenix 15 – Inspiration

Found in an alleyway where people park their garbage cans so the collection service can do their thing and haul away the waste.  There was a stretch of decorated wall that ran more than 100 yards deep into the alley…the backsides of backyard walls in a mid-city residential area.  The art was created as part of Paint Phx 2015.

  6. Her expression seems so sad or, as disperser said, haunting. An amazing piece of street art.

  7. Penetrating eyes, Scott. A bit scary, but it draws you in.

    • Hopefully it inspires more than fear, though….

  10. So much street art in Phoenix! You photographed this one really well. We’ll be there soon, and on our way north to Navaho/Hopi country (see my comment in the cactus wren nest post).
