Abstract alley art

Fresh abstract painting/collage/assemblage can be found in city alleys.

A video is presented below.

Here are my findings over the last two years in the alleys and backstreets of Austin, Texas:

Absolutely wonderful! I have found myself drawn to (alley/abandoned building, etc.) images such as these throughout my entire life. I'm really glad to know that you appreciate them as works of design. We have a lot of them here too in Atlanta, I used many of them when I was in photography classes.
