Nature Eventually Wins

Vines And Graffiti, Asheville, NC  -  2014
(Click on photo to enlarge.)

The site of some abandoned silos on the edge of the River Arts District in Asheville has been a favorite spot for graffiti artists for years. New works would appear on the walls virtually overnight, painted over the previous artists' efforts. In some places, the spray paint is at least an eighth of an inch thick.

For some reason, the spray painters have lost some interest in the silos. Perhaps they've moved on to more challenging and dangerous locations for their work. Nature, however, has continued the tradition of covering old work with new compositions. Kudzu and Forever Pea vines have now added their own mix of color and texture to the walls, partially covering previous works.
