Westport has an extensive variety of graffiti, focused on Broadway, extending from Westport Road North. Our next destination is 39th and Central. Here, for the first time, I discovered a building where two walls are currently being painted with colorful murals. Hopefully, you will immediately recognize our friend, Scribe. Each painter has a unique style. Many can be found in Westport, along Broadway, Oak, and even in the West Bottoms.
As I have driven throughout the city, I have become acquainted with many of the artists. Many identify themselves with names like “Scribe”, “Saron”, “Storm”, “Frost” and “feminine”. Some artists use initials “SKY ZNK” and “TCTW”. Their styles are also becoming familiar.
Cartoon characters, dogs, cats, dragons and birds and even insects, are common themes.
This great bull dog is identified as the work of “GEAR”.
For those not yet weary of graffiti, still to be explored is art from outside the Mid-town corridors.
