Little Five Points mural

Little Five Points Neighborhood, Atlanta

Little Five Points is Atlanta’s hippie ‘hood. Everything about the area is Bohemian chic, and vintage stores line the streets alongside a natural foods market and indie radio station. Pull up a chair and take in the music of street performers and commence people watching. There are many treasures to be found in Little Five Points. This eclectic neighborhood, nestled just north of East Atlanta and easily accessible by I-20, is one of the most satisfying places to people-watch in Atlanta. Another thing Little Five does particularly well is street art, which adorns several buildings around the area and ranges from musical to historical to patriotic to urban. – discoveratlanta.com/explore/neighborhoods/eastside/little-five-points

HENSE & Atlanta BeltLine mural

Eastside Trail under Virginia Avenue

We just finished up a public mural on a historic structure for the Atlanta BeltLine public art program 2011. I painted this one with longtime friend and collaborator, BORN. We spent roughly twelve hours a day for almost two weeks on the mural. We felt it was important for the work to show both of our tastes as artists and I think we succeeded. We titled the piece “Fruition.” – hensebthename.com/news/atlanta-beltline-mural

Spatial Tension Mural

Eastside; just north of 10th Street and Monroe Drive

Spencer Murrill, an artist, painted the front of this building in 2013, with the intention of “moving and progressing” as users of the Atlanta BeltLine moved alongside it. The bright colors and eye-catching shapes appeal to both children and adults. It is easily accessible and situated on the east side of Piedmont Park.

Where the BeltLine Bears were Born

Eastside; just north of 10th Street and Monroe Drive

Kyle Brooks’ 2014 mural can be found on the side of the building. Brooks describes this mural, which depicts “an undersea world with crabs, fish, mermaids, sea beasts, and bear sea anemones,” as a continuation of his previous work, BeltLine Bears. He is a folk street artist, and his whimsical and playful paintings make people happy. After posing for photos, eat lunch at Piedmont Park’s Park Tavern and then play all day.
