- living walls: jason kofke -


my favorite of the downtown decatur living walls murals is by atlanta artist jason kofke. it’s above the old decatur village vets next to las brasas and looks like an airplane safety manual. it plays on the fact that airplanes are pretty much the only place you are supposed to look out for yourself before the safety of children.

being on top of a building makes the mural kind of hard to see, especially a clear view of the whole work. you have to walk away and check it out from various locations to see everything, which is a fun element of the piece.

here is another mural by jason we posted a couple of years ago, it’s the one at the bottom with fighter jets. the painting was part of the 2010 living walls conference. be sure to visit his jason’s website to see other projects he’s been a part of.

here is another living walls piece in downtown decatur. you can find this huge mural on the side of the old paste magazine building near the dairy queen. it’s by south african based street artist freddy sam & argentinian based ever. these guys have done some amazing work around the globe, so be sure to visit their websites. here is an interesting interview with ever from a buenos aires street art publication and an article on freddy sam’s street art in cape town.

downtown decatur was covered with living walls murals in 2011. there were six pieces installed in all, which is quite impressive for such a small area. this first mural can be found on the side of squash blossom in the decatur square. it’s by gaia & nanook, the same duo who did the sunrise on edgewood piece we covered a few weeks ago.
