Yesterday, I went to meet a friend and fellow artist, Jeremy Russell, in his studio in a part of Asheville's River Arts District that I'd never been to. It's in a rough-looking industrial section, away from the trendy and chic areas, and you pretty much have to know it's there. I found some amazing graffitti covering the walls of the old industrial buildings. This is really good work, beautifully done. These buildings are most definitely not abandoned, either - they're home to artists, the Terpsicorps dance group, and some other small businesses.
