Detroit Graffiti near Russell Street and the I-94 Overpass

Detroit Graffiti @ Russell Street & US-94 #6The 14 works of Detroit graffiti shown in this post can be found in the general area where Russell Street passes underneath Interstate 94 just to the east of Interstate 75 in the Poletown East neighborhood.

The gracefully aged works shown in photographs #1 and #2 are actually located directly underneath I-94, upon the west buttress of the freeway’s bridge over Russell Street.

Circle the building located on the southwest corner of Russell and Rivard Street to see the works showcased in photographs #3 through #7. Click here to see other works upon the walls of the very same building we previously photographed back in December of 2011. Wonder, like we did, about the editorial statement Detroit Graffiti @ Russell Street & US-94 #7.1intended by whomever bolted the wooden “Epic Fail” sign over one of the most beautiful “Reyes” works you will find anywhere in the city.

Explore a semi graveyard and its walls, just to north of the of the I-94 overpass on the east side of the street, to find the remaining works shown in this post’s photo album. Do so at your own risk, however, as we have no idea if this motor mausoleum is private property or if it’s not. ~I♥DM
