When I saw this one I instantly liked it and assumed it was completed for the most part. These photos of the Alley behind the corner of Stevens Creek and Bascom were taken a couple of weeks apart and show some changes. For this mural, it was dramatic and still excellent even though very different to me after the artist added the lines you will see next.
I like it both ways so much I can not quite make up my mind which way I would prefer it. Each way feels different to me like separate and excellent works. I ran into the artist, Augie WK (https://www.thejamsbrand.com/augiewk), selling some of his artwork at a SoFA First Friday event and told him how I liked this mural off of Stevens Creek and how I liked it both ways so much. He told me that he’s heard similar thoughts often from people with his art. He sometimes uses the lines and sometimes does not when he employs this style in his work. I’m glad that I was able to stop and appreciate this mural in both phases.
Here are some more works in the alley from various artists. New pieces pop up every once in a while so this alley already has more works than is captured in these photos.
