Get Familiar with Greg Mike

Originally from Connecuit, Atlanta native Greg Mike is going above and beyond for the creative community in Atlanta. As the founder and creative director of ABV Agency / Gallery, Mike has been a true voice for the art community. Mike has always had an obsession with crisp line work and boundless energy, which is why much of his work showcase creation and design of cartoons. 

Much of Mike's most known work comes from that of murals he does when transposing a regular piece of scenery into a beautiful work of art for those who cross paths with the piece. Along with making a stronger impact into the community, Mike's ABV Gallery space has given several opportunities to local artist, and artist around the country.

Chrissy Brimmage Sheds Lights on Atlanta

For those of you who art interested into the world of art, meet Chrissy Brimmage. Chrissy has a unique style of art that she refers to as "line-art", which was inspired by a dream she had while in Thailand. Over time and self expression, her styled has evolved from mimicking wire-renderings to her current geometric and crystallized style. Brimmage takes a liking to black and white based work with splash of accent color, useful as making the viewer dig deeper.

Sage Guillory is Painting The Picture

Some say that Atlanta's art scene is lack luster but Sage Guillory begs to differ. Sage consistently shows the world that he is not afraid to step outside the box. Jumping from customs designs of major music influencers to cover art Sage continues to break barriers. Sage added a major feet under his belt when he held his first solo art showcase in 2016. The two event set a new precedent of how the youth is contributing to the culture of art. We look forward to see what Sage has in store next.

Atlanta Street Artist gets Interactive

Interactive

Almost mirroring a concept out of a Dr. Seuss book, Atlanta’s artists challenge the concept of mundane activities. Going for a run? Keep an eye out for one of (currently) six very tiny doors or “check out” a book at one of the cities many miniature “Little Free” Libraries.  Is it time for lunch? Grab your meal to go and enjoy it on one of Midtown’s colorful Los Trompos spinning “tops”.

Atlanta Street Art Scene

With roots deep in the music culture, Atlanta is certainly no stranger to the art community. However, it has not been until recent years that the scene has seized the attention of the public eye. The number of artists residing in the city has begun to surge, and art culture is now a part of everyday urban life. 

Street Art

If street art is your thing, you’re in luck. Atlanta was recently recognized as one of the best cities in the country for viewing art, largely thanks to local organizations such as Living Walls. Public art has evolved from the era of spray-paint-heavy graffiti to large painted murals you could envision hanging in your living room. Local artists continue to evolve ordinary spaces into extraordinary places. Besides Midtown, some other great areas to see street art are Old Forth Ward, Edgewood Avenue, Krog Street, Cabbagetown and the Atlanta Beltline.
