RVA Street Art: Miscellaneous

RVA Street Art: Miscellaneous | Yeti Crafts
In which I share street art I've stumbled upon that does not fit into the categories I chose at the beginning of this series.

When I first decided to personally document the street art in Richmond until I couldn't stand it anymore, I was woefully uninformed about who was doing what and how much they were doing.  There was a lot of information online about the Richmond Mural Project and the RVA Street Art Festivals, and it took me awhile to sort through all of it.  A couple of weeks ago, Art Whino had the fourth annual installment of the RMP, and once I've taken pictures of all the new murals, I'll be all caught up with those two groups. (I'll be making that trip soon!)

RVA Street Art: Mickael Broth and Welcoming Walls

RVA Street Art: Mickael Broth and Welcmong Walls | Yeti Crafts
 Throughout my mural documentation, I've come across a handful of names more often than others -  I can easily identify the work of Hamilton Glass or Chris Milk Hulburt and I'm now Facebook friends with Ed Trask - but one local artist holds a particularly special place in my heart.  Not only do I absolutely adore Mickael Broth's murals (they've consistently been my favorites, even before I knew they were his), but I've inadvertently been following his work for over a decade.

RVA Street Art: Richmond Mural Project 2014

RVA Street Art: Richmond Mural Project 2014 | Yeti Crafts

In 2014, the fervor for street art seems to have cooled a little.  There was no RVA Street Art Festival, the Richmond Mural project produced fewer pieces than it had in the previous years, and online coverage was slack.  Art Whino didn't even bother to record their own 2014 murals as they had for 2012 and 2013. I'm not sure what caused the decreased enthusiasm, as it seems to be back this year.  Announcements have already been made concerning the plans for both the Richmond Mural Project and RVA Street Art Festival for this year.
