Graffiti Marathon: Westport and Broadway

Westport represents a distinctive subculture within the Kansas City community.  It is hip.  It is alternative.

It is the place young people go on Friday night, Saturday night and St. Patrick’s Day.  It is also a mecca for graffiti artists.

AKKA Karate deserves its own post.  Located at 40th Terrace, just North of Westport Road, AKKA is rich with graffiti.

Colorful images fill the East and North sides of the building.  They delight us with their creative energy.

Tigers, fish with fangs, honey bees and other strange critters, known and unknowable, confront us from the walls.

If you look closely, and compare the images on these walls, you will start to see similarities to other paintings on walls throughout town.

Scribe, whoever you are, congratulations on some great work.

Next, we will cross Broadway where more graffiti awaits us.
