Photos: Electric

Decatur has a new series of street art (I hope it’s officially sanctioned so these pieces stay up and don’t get painted over) that turns the dull green electrical boxes on every corner into whimsical street art:

The top two are by an artist with the intials LEC and the bottom I don’t think has a signature, so if you know either of them please let me know so I can give them proper credit and maybe link to some of their other art!

Also wanted to share this one which I put on my instagram a while back. Unbelievably, this piece was painted over just days after it was completed – it was a commissioned piece but then the building was sold and the new owners painted it out. Such a shame. It’s by popular Atlanta artist Catlanta and you can check his other work out here
