Abandoned Car Wash Grafitti

May 02, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

The owner of Phat Bites Deli in Donelson, TN also owned the property next door, and I assume, the abandoned car wash that sat on that property for years.

The owner kindly permitted graffiti artists to put their art on the car wash walls. If there were 8 car wash walls, there were 10 car wash canvases ready for graffiti art.

I took the photos in this gallery with my cellphone in 2012; I never got back to shoot more serious DSLR photos.

The abandoned car wash met the wrecking ball in 2014. Eight years later, I was looking for images to try some once known but mostly forgotten Photoshop post-processing techniques when I came across these mostly forgotten images.

I talked to several graffiti artists the day I shot photos at the car wash. Although they were permitted to put their art there, one or two didn’t want to be in a photo, fearing being known by police when they put their art in places they weren’t permitted. A few artists were bold enough to sign their art.

I showed the artists graffiti images I shot of graffiti in the Krog St. Tunnel in Atlanta and they recognized the artists by name and recognized their work.
