Sometimes a spot stays up much longer than you’d expect, especially given an area’s traffic and change in streetscape. That’s definitely the case with this simple tag by JAZI on 16th St. NW across from Caroline.

Central and visible, view of the spot is usually blocked by parked cars (as we found it), so you’d have to catch it at just the right moment to notice at all. Plus, the difficulty getting to it makes it easy to pass.

Around the corner – a new stencil seen recently around Dupont that will likely be a bit more fleeting.

Walking around Dupont and U St. this week, you may have seen these new stickers by DECOY featuring The Sweater Set. The yellow one is on U St. b/t 16th & 17th, south side of the street. The blue one is at the corner of 17th & Riggs, on the back of a sign.

If you’ve been past Logan hardware and Whole Foods by 14th & P St. NW over the past 4 years, in the alley behind Irvine Contemporary and Transformer galleries, you’ve seen a long standing set of murals by Shephard Fairey, Gaia, and others.

Slowly, as to be expected, the murals met their fate. Possibly first was when Whole Foods mistakenly painted over Gaia’s part of it after a neighbor complained. Then the Cat Aids moniker showed up on the Shephard Fairey portion at street view. Lame. Piece by piece, the murals broke down.

Now, a new set of murals is up and fresh — a NEKST tribute + PEAR x AREK x ELI x CON. Go catch them in person before they’re gone!
