Eastern Market Street Art – 40 New Discoveries – Summer 2015

Eastern Mkt Pre MITH 33Eastern Mkt Pre MITH 15All the well-deserved hype and publicity generated by the “Murals in the Market” project has overshadowed the many lost works of quality Detroit Street Art that peppered the city’s Eastern Market district in the months and weeks before the event took place. While most of the works included herein remain, Eastern Mkt Pre MITH 27Eastern Mkt Pre MITH 30many of the best failed to make the cut. When great street art dies at the altar of new outdoor canvases it is most certainly predictable, understandable, but nonetheless regrettable. Most sadly missed, in our opinion, will be two dynamic, emotive works by Australian muralist Anthony Lister, both of which Eastern Mkt Pre MITH 16Eastern Mkt Pre MITH 20have been covered, surprisingly, by works of equal brilliance. Also lost to the ages in the six to nine months since we shot them: five unique pieces at 1822 Division Street, three on the East Fisher Service Drive between Orleans and Riopelle, and Sintex’s excellent rendition of a classic Coleman Young photograph on the east wall of Cheap Charlies at 1461 Gratiot Avenue. On a positive note, you can still find all of ’em here; some of ’em only here. You’re welcome. ~I♥DM
