12oz Twelve #detroitgraffiti Instagrams
We are all addicted to Instagram whether we’ll admit it or not. We love pictures and Instagram gives them to us by the thousands. Endless amounts of flicks, every second of the day from all over the globe. Yes, I, attng3tr am an addict of the ‘gram. As difficult as it was, we decided to choose 12 of the 52,000 posts hashtagged #detroitgraffiti to showcase some dope Detroit graffiti. These are some of the posts that stand out.
One of the most well known bathrooms’ in the D belongs to Honest Johns. As you can see, anyone that’s anyone has a tag in this bathroom. This Purge was half of the wall shared with Shock that you could view from the rooftop of an abandoned cold storage facility. Once scrappers starting cutting ceiling beams out, it’s been left to crumble, as seen here. Fantastic shot with the reflections of Head, Dems and Loaf. Once a building for cold storage now abandoned. Rise up! This gigantic mural done by Meggs includes burners on the bottom from Elmer, Tead and Rawr. The amount of detail put into this wall by everyone makes it one of the most noticeable in the city! Long live King Nekst with this tribute done by Revok, Pose and Vizie on the front of the Modern Contemporary of Arts (MOCAD) Museum. The Brewster Rec Center is a interesting location for writers to take advantage of spraying “poolside”. In this instance there isn’t any wait staff coming by with drink orders. This well captured rooftop showcases one of the things Stori is best known for…rooftop rollers. They can be seen all throughout the city. Niets or more commonly known as “nationwide Niets” kills it with color combos. This spot is no different bringing life to a forgotten about space. The Dequindre Cut was THE place to find the freshest graff in the city. Now as we enter the “city of the future” the cut is being renovated to connect to the Riverfront Walkway. This is a great shot to remember how the cut was. That Arbe sits on a bridge that was permanently removed for the renovation. Detroit and cars and as of recently graff, go hand in hand. Here this ol Charger gets tagged up by various writers. Shear and Elmer, from the TCP crew killed it with this one! Taking individual pieces from Omens (M), Steel (S) and Revok (K) to make the infamous MSK crew letters.
