RVA Street Art: Miscellaneous

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!)

During my trips into Richmond and through the social media accounts I've began following as a result of all this, I've learned that there are other, less publicized groups as well as a handful of individuals also currently creating public art in Richmond.  I've been trying to follow every loose thread I discover, but they're starting to seem a little endless, and I'm not sure I'll be able to maintain the comprehensive collection I'd originally hoped for.  On one hand, it's a good thing.  Artists are getting work, and new murals are going up all the time, but it's getting a little overwhelming to hunt it all down and document it.

I've also had issue trying to figure out who's painted what, as a lot of the randos I've encountered on my outings are not clearly signed or listed online.  I've been able to figure a lot of them out through some creative googling (which is tedious and extremely time-consuming), but some of them are still uncredited.
