There’s nothing we love more than the LOCAL, and street artists are a huge part of what makes us feel like we are in a particular place at a particular time–it’s an artform rooted in the present because it’s totally ephemeral. Last month, we launched our video of Catlanta, which featured an Atlanta street artist who gets folks out of their homes and into the streets of our beloved for an art scavenger hunt, all in good fun. This week we bring you Evereman, who makes art “4U ATL” with the help of other local artists and patrons.
My favorite thing about the art that Evereman puts out is that it comes with a message of giving. He believes art is for sharing and for making together and he believes that “the vibrancy of a city is reflected in the vibrancy of its street art.” You can find Evereman pieces all over the city of Atlanta and they’re yours for the taking.
In the spirit of loving on the local, several local presses picked up the project and said some really beautiful things about it. You can catch us in Scoutmob and Creative Loafing–thanks to you local lovies for the warm and fuzzies. Nothing better than a city that just loves the mess out of itself, and in the ATL we’ve got a lot to love!
