The Artists saw the oppurtunity to show case thier talents they have worked years to perfect, and ask the store owners if they could do a peice on the wall. The store owners agreed on the condition that they write the store name somewhere everyone can see. It was a beautiful site. Almost every car that drove up Congdon while I was out there complimented thier work and thanked them for helping to add color and character to the community.
Of course out of respect for the artist and to protect their illusivness as graph writers I didn't shoot their faces but I did get them working their magic.
In a follow up interview with Sia who has been running R&E Liquors for the past 20 years he expresses his pleasure for the peice. He said that all of his customers really appreiciate the work and feel that it was a positive addition to the community except for some new guy named TOM that called every city agency he could think of in order to complain about the style of artwork.
