Graffiti St. Pete

Part of an multi-artist installation in St. Pete about 1-2 years ago. I love the juxtaposition of the checkboard with the free flowing lines in the figure. That figure is fierce…certainly a modern day warrior of some sort, with a touch of dia de los muertos thrown in for good measure. Not sure if the checkboard part belonged to the same artist as the figure part, they could have coexisted. I enjoy seeing this type of work and shoot it whenever possible because it often does not last very long, even if sanctioned by a store or local government. Sometimes they spray over just to change the installation before I have a chance to get there and document it. But the transitory nature of the media just enriches it.
