Hapeville Street Art
Today I stumbled upon a wealth of street art tucked away on a side street in Hapeville!
If you’ve never been to Hapeville, it’s a small town just south of Atlanta (literally about four minutes from the Atlanta airport) that is currently experiencing a bit of a renaissance.
It has a kind of 1950s feel to me (which you’ll get a sense of in the Coca Cola art below) and has a whole lot of small town charm.
Starting with this piece:
I love the contrast of the black and white portrait (is that Billie Holiday?) with the technicolor blossoms.
Speaking of the blossoms, here’s another angle:
They even seamlessly painted the door.
This piece was across the red brick walkway:
A depiction of ‘Son of Man’ by surrealist painter René Magritte.
The building itself seems to be heavily under construction, but the art is beautiful nonetheless.
Vincent van Gogh is featured next door.
Missing an eye instead of an ear. :-)
Here’s the Coca Cola art:
Can’t you just hear the signature fizzle of a freshly opened, ice-cold coke? Ahhhhhh!
With this last piece, be ready to leap for joy!
These two dancers are the perfect compliment to the yoga studio that they’re painted on!
On another day, I spied this work from the Lotus Eaters Club:
I’m so glad to have stumbled upon this trove of street art in Hapeville.
When’s the last time you came across some unexpected art? Where was it? Do tell!
