Historic Church Transformed with Graffiti Art by Hense

Amazing things happen when architecture and art meet halfway! Atlanta-based artist Hense chose a historic church from this area as his canvas and painted it in vibrant flashy colors.

The exterior of the church changed completely, every surface and every little corner got a new bold look. Hense says that “Taking an existing object like the church and painting the entire thing re-contextualizes it and makes it a sculptural object. With projects like this one, we really try to use the existing architecture as inspiration for the direction of the painting.” Looks like this time the art/architecture collision in a form of the street art embodies a fine art work.
