10 New Works of Detroit Street Art in Eastern Market

Sintex Mural 2New Detroit street art abounds in the city’s Eastern Market district, which (along with the Grand River Creative Corridor) has become the very epicenter of Detroit’s world-renowned graffiti art and culture explosion. Local and visiting artists have teamed over the past few years to create a stunning, district-wide outdoor gallery that equals or bests just about any single-site graffiti-style art installation anywhere in North America if not the world. Area graffiti and street art enthusiasts owe a mammoth debt of gratitude to the core group of individuals and organizations that have spearheaded efforts to bring many of the world’s best street artists to our doorstep. Where Eastern Market is concerned, this list includes but is not limited to, 1) the folks at Inner State Gallery and “1xRUN” at 1410 Gratiot Avenue, 2) administrators at the Red Bull House of Art at 1551 Winder Street, and perhaps most important, 3) the generous Eastern Market business and property owners who have shown their passion for Detroit street and graffiti style art by offering up their buildings as legal canvases.

Showcased here in this post are just ten new pieces amongst hundreds of works currently found in Eastern Market. All but one are located in the immediate vicinity of Riopelle & Winder, within eyeshot of the aforementioned Red Bull House of Art. Most are untitled to the best of our knowledge. Look for updates and additions to the factual information contained in the entries below over the coming weeks. ~I♥DM
