Living Walls – Pictures from Baltimore’s Graffiti Alley

1

Graffiti alley comes at you sort of wonderfully, like a something-around-the-bend actually worth anticipating. You’re walking down Howard toward North Ave, past the parking lots and weirdly high volume of car shops, and then you see her, about 12-feet off the ground. An image of a Muslim woman with a bandolier and a gun is pasted at the alley’s entrance like a sentinel.

On the opposite wall, a little higher up, “NO RULES” is scrawled in chunky beige font. That’s a decent summary of Graffiti alley, the space behind the Load of Fun building on the corner of Howard and West North.
