A few months ago, I was lucky enough to be able to visit Baltimore during their Open Walls Baltimore mural program. In addition to being fortunate enough to meet some of the most amazing artists from around the world, I was also able to explore the many hidden graffiti spots that the area had to offer. With a local writer as my guide, I was able to document over two dozen spots and see a wide range of work.

As part of Vandalog’s “Great in ’08” series, which will be running every day for the rest of the month. Check out previous posts here.

Who is one artist doing really great work right now?
Peru Ana Ana Peru: it’s hard to pick one, as there are so many, but we’d have to say that we are quite fond of the work going up by the ADHD Kids at the moment. they seem to be trying to go their own way in the graff scene, and that’s nice. faro, bloke, anthrax, naks, venom, etc. they’ve got great style, and their letterings are dope.
