Paint Memphis sponsoring SoulFood 5

Paint Memphis is sponsoring a one-day festival, Soul Food 5, on October 1, 2016 that will bring over 100 artists together to paint the flood wall adjacent to the proposed Chelsea Greenline. The wall starts at the Chelsea trailhead, at N. Evergreen and Chelsea and goes west for .3 miles, making it the biggest collaborative mural in Memphis. Though a one-day event, we have expanded this wall into a permission wall, legal and sanctioned by the city, a place where artists can show of their talents and reflect the spirit of our city. We have established a list of local and regional painters for the event as well as guidelines for painting: no obscenities, no gang-related imagery.!

You may try to ignore it, but it’s there, when you go to the movies, drive to work, walk down the street. And in […]

Chasing Trains at Midnight: Barl and Neen

Chasing trains at midnight, running through ditches at dawn, tromping around a condemned warehouse in the dead of night. These aren’t the most romantic places to go on a date for most Memphians, but for Neen and Barl, two talented graffiti writers, it’s not the location that matters, but the collaboration, the sharing, and the […]
