John Tabor Jacobson was selling spraypaint at The Avenue Concept, a hub for southside graffiti artists, when he stumbled upon project that eventually took his own work in a new direction. Work needed to be done on the building’s “legal wall”, where local graffiti artists paint new murals every few months. Jacobson took roughly ten years of built-up paint – layers so dense that they could be wrapped in one giant sheet – and began experimenting. The abstract, intricate results are on display now in the shop, and they’re worth checking out.
