Street Art, Short North, Columbus, Ohio


image

While visiting friends in Columbus, we happened on some really fun and colorful street art in an area near the Ohio State University campus called the Short North. At one point I caused my hosts a bit of consternation when I disappeared down a side street to capture these first three images, which were all part of one wall.

This long wall was completely covered in images.

image

I particularly like how this blue guy is holding the electrical conduit outside the building like a spear.

image

I think this little guy might have been added on later by a separate artist/tagger, but it’s hard to know where one things stops and another starts.

image

image

Is bd the artist? Who knows?

image

image

I like the octopi and the angry blue triangle-headed guys here. A nice octopus-looking creature showed up in another mural across the street so maybe the same artist/s did both walls?

image

A hat pulling a rabbit wearing a hat out of a hat. Top that!

image

That is one cool flower, man.

image

This is on some board in front of a construction area at a crosswalk.

image

This wall is across the street from the first long wall.

image

Even the pole for the parking sign is painted, as well as the sign above the wheelchair parking sign.

image

Here’s that lovely octopus I was talking about. His tentacles are reflected in the roof of the car parked beneath him.

image

Tripping – that word comes to mind.

image

A little poetry and possibly a peeking giraffe?

The sort of Seussical end.
