i'm having some serious building love with this church mural installation by atlanta-based artist hense (real name: alex brewer), a graffiti-turned-contemporary artist who is transforming neighborhoods one building at a time.  as part of a private commission in washington dc, hense used a historic church as an extremely oversized canvas for his colorful, abstract compositions.  his shapes are textures are gestural, leaving meaning up for interpretation, while the vibrant hues create a playful mood.  living in the mission district in san francisco, one of the most heavily-muraled places i've seen, i know what a positive impact these public pieces of art can have on a community and its people, so it makes me happy to know that somebody else is spreading the love on such a large scale!  learn more about hense here
