Historic Church Transformed with Graffiti Art by Hense

Amazing things happen when architecture and art meet halfway! Atlanta-based artist Hense chose a historic church from this area as his canvas and painted it in vibrant flashy colors. The church became a multi-angled mural of abstract figures and dynamic shades. The church’s walls were covered in graffiti like concrete buildings that you pass by almost everyday. The only difference here is that Hence’s project has absolutely no issues with the law.

The exterior of the church changed completely, every surface and every little corner got a new bold look. Hense says that “Taking an existing object like the church and painting the entire thing re-contextualizes it and makes it a sculptural object. With projects like this one, we really try to use the existing architecture as inspiration for the direction of the painting.” Looks like this time the art/architecture collision in a form of the street art embodies a fine art work.
