The RVA Street Art Festival returned in 2016 in a big way—location, Manchester. Under the giant shadow of the iconic Southern States silos, the energy was off the chart as the historic narrative of old Richmond collided with 21st century culture, artistry and creativity for an epic, week-long renaissance. In other words, old Richmond got very cool, in a very big way (in addition to the awesomeness of the flood wall and the James). It's an ongoing happening here and I can't wait to see where it goes. A big shout out to the homie John Mills and the rest of the RVA Street Art Committee for letting me be a apart of the event and capture the magic. I hope you enjoy the series as much as I enjoyed meeting and shooting all the great artists and work featured. Hit me up on Instagram(@Houseof_O) or on Twitter (@HouseofO) with any comments or questions. Maybe we can create something together.
