Still a little weird yet flattering to see one of my bunnies immortalized in this painting by @eknightpaintings You can also recognize the always happiness inducing imagery of @alexferror in the piece. You can see the painting this weekend at @brickworksgallery The walls on Krog tunnel are always awesome to check out, but they’ve probably been repainted 50 times since this canvas was made 😆 #atlantaartist #Repost @eknightpaintings with @get_repost ・・・ #Repost @brickworksgallery with @get_repost ・・・ Constructed in 1912, the tunnel runs under Hulsey Yard and has two lanes for traffic, as well as pedestrian walkways. The tunnel runs between DeKalb Avenue on the Inman Park side and Wylie Street on the Cabbagetown side. The tunnel also doubles as a message board, and is frequently updated with details for local events, such as concerts and festivals. Artist Amir Totem, who goes by Totem, began painting in the Krog Street Tunnel in 1995, when he says most of the artwork there was mere scrawlings or done by stencil. “There was no art in there. It was just like tags from people passing through from neighborhood to neighborhood,” Totem said. “It was never extravagant like it is now. There were no completed pieces or anything like that in there at that time.” Krog Street Tunnel is a continually evolving canvas updated by graffiti artists. The city of Atlanta is working to incorporate the tunnel into the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail extension. | “Krog Street Tunnel” by @eknightpaintings is currently being shown, at @brickworksgallery as part of a larger series entitled “Walking The ATL” . STOP BY THE GALLERY THIS WEEKEND, AND CHECK OUT THIS AMAZING WORK! AND MORE 💚
