On Cherokee Street

Cherokee Street Wall Art 2
Funky Cherokee, home to our small Hispanic community and a bunch of edgy art galleries. More interesting wall art has been popping up. This one got my attention. The patterns and design are so complex it is hard to interpret. The costumes look nearly Japanese. It kind of looks like a woman enveloping and perhaps strangling a smaller person. Then there is addition: crude, destructive, but also a bit witty.


Downtown St. Louis 365 advises you not to cross the barrier.

THe artist responsible for that goes by the name Swoon. No idea about the addition though.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swoon_(artist)

Looks quite elaborate for sure. There's a lot going on here.

It's a beautiful work. Shame on taggers that don't even respect street art! Same here...
