Detroit Street Art – 20 New Discoveries – Autumn 2016

img_4287Find these 20 new to new-ish works of Detroit street art and graffiti scattered throughout the Eastern Market district and a few southwestern neighborhoods. A handful of geographical outliers are thrown in, to boot, most notably the 12-story, epic vertical mural by the international street art superstars, ‘How & Nosm’. Find it upon the back side of Compuware’s world headquarters at Campus Martius, in the very heart of downtown. Can any of our twelve readers identify all five metro-Detroiters depicted in entry #20, also shown in our featured photo at the top of this page? More importantly, can anyone identify the artist who produced this fresh wheatpaste? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? ~I♥DM
