After years of spotting DC graffiti, this pic is still a favorite. An unlikely shot, it captures a peak in Red Line graffiti that’s taken a hit in recent years by development along the metro. Extra credit if you know the building this is on. Still, DC Metro Red Line from Union Station to Silver Spring is a great way to find new DC graffiti. But don’t blink, it’ll go by fast.

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!
