graffiti in asheville

I’ve been impressed with the street art of Asheville, especially the graffiti. I’ve always admired the bold, bright use of colors and the illusive nature of the art. There are several artists that come to mind when I think of this genre. One I LOVE is Banksy and his political pieces. Another is skateboard and surfboard artist Jim Phillips. Graffiti is controversial and is considered vandalism but, it is an inspiring part of our natural consciousness. Here are some inspiring and colorful pieces I came across on my walks through Asheville.

Here is some that I found inside the Asheville Art Museum. I didn’t get the artists name. ;(
