Street Art #6: Colorado Springs

This is from the same western warehouse wall in Colorado Springs, Colorado, as the first five Street Art posts - in the Depot Art District.
This is probably a self-portrait of the artist, but it also may be a tribute to a local hero or a memorial to a fallen friend.  In any case, it is a stunning demonstration of this painter's artistry.  This "bust" is probably at least 12 feet high.  The light-and-shadow technique used to create the features of the image are truly excellent.

This time around, for reference, I include a picture of most of the entire wall:

  1. Seems he took over that entire abandoned complex to express his talents and even left his signature as a self portrait. Love it.
