remed also painted the huge 11-story mural we recently covered, head there to see more of his artwork. if you would like to see more of ripo’s murals, head here, here & here or for an interview head here.
you will find this collaborative 2010 living walls mural along dekalb avenue on the side of studio nine hundred. we drive on dekalb quite a bit, so this was one of the first murals that brought our attention to the non-profit. the walls were painted by street artists swampy (oakland, ca), gaia (baltimore, md) & greg mike (atlanta).
this living walls piece from 2010 went up on the front of an apartment complex on edgewood avenue. it’s by atlanta-based artist michi meko and is fairly close to a bunch of other old fourth ward living walls murals along edgewood ave.
here is one of my favorite living walls murals from 2010. the painting is by oakland-based street artist doodles and is large and in charge! it’s fairly close to our house on the side of jai shanti yoga and was actually one of the first living walls murals we were aware of.
doodles also painted a collaborative mural with swampy near eyedrum during the 2010 campaign, which is also great! visit here, here or here to see more of doodles artwork or visit here to purchase some of his original pieces.
here is another living walls mural from 2010. it’s actually on the side of the atlanta restaurant home grown by street artist feral child from oakland, california. here is another living walls mural feral child painted in downtown atlanta.
in celebration of the 2012 living walls conference, i’m going to post some of the murals that kicked off the first conference back in 2010. these are some of the earliest living walls conference murals that went up around eyedrum. the artists included jason kofke (atlanta), greg mike (atlanta), doodles (oakland), swampy (oakland), faber (lima, peru) & others.
more to follow!

the 2012 living walls conference is upon us! this year will be the world’s first all female street art conference. it features 26 female artists who are currently painting new murals all over the city!
the five-day conference includes film screenings, lectures, a huge block party & map release (which shows you where all the new murals are), and even a bike tour of the walls. all of which are free and open to the public! for a full schedule of events, head here.
at least two of the new pieces are in kirkwood, which is exciting! one is already finished in downtown kirkwood across from le petit marché where the marco steno mural used to be. here is a video with some making-of footage.
the other one is under the bridges at rocky ford & college/dekalb. there were 3 or 4 female artists prepping this wall yesterday, so i bet they will be painting it over the next day or two if you want to see out a work in progress!
be sure to check out the living walls vimeo page for daily video updates from this years conference!
the last of the downtown living walls murals in atlanta is a collaborative wall by oakland-based street artist feral child and atlanta-based russia. it’s actually not too far from the alligator or underground atlanta murals if you want to go check a bunch out.
i really like feral child’s style and use of color. his part of the wall is by far the best! i like how his design wraps around the front of the building as well. some of his work can be a little too psychedelic for my taste, but all in all i dig it. to see more of his work, head here, here & here. i couldn’t find much information on russia, but i wasn’t the biggest fan of his section of the wall either.

the first living walls mural that went up in downtown atlanta was part of the 2010 conference. from what i’ve read, there was a last-minute donation which allowed the production of this huge painting.
paris-based street artist remed painted this massive 11-story mural on the side of the thrifty car rental on peachtree center. it’s so big that it’s hard to photograph. i’ve done quite a bit of production work nearby and have tried shooting it from various vantage points. it’s sandwiched between two tall buildings though, so it’s hard to get the whole mural without a bunch of power lines. it looks like i need to head to the top floor of a nearby parking garage or get a fisheye lens to capture it better.
you can actually get a sweet view of the mural if you zoom in on google maps using satellite mode. i guess i just needed a satellite camera!
