I love street art. Call it what you will, graffiti, tagging, trash, a mess even, I still like it.
When I was younger, I lived in New York City. It was in New York, down in the subway at 124th and Lex that I used to watch the train cars go by, covered with some of the most amazing art I’ve ever seen.
After a couple of months, I began to appreciate the art form. I could tell who, or which crew worked on which train. I began to see themes emerge. Also started to notice that each crew would try to one-up the other crews out there.
In El Paso, there is an area I love to visit. 1500 E. Third Street, downtown, is a long warehouse. Wherever you look, on every surface you see you will find some of the best street art the city has to offer. That’s what I am sharing with you today, that art.
I think it is amazing that the owners of this property, and a couple of surrounding buildings, will allow local crews to come out and do their thing. I’m excited to see that I am not the only one who apricates this art form and encourages it.
I hope you enjoy the photos and the art they contain!
