Rounding a corner along an Indianapolis alley, pedestrians come face to face with a 40-feet-wide scene seemingly out of a deranged comic book.
A cartoonish mole, complete with a pick-axe, miner’s helmet and goggles, rides a trolley cart through an eerily glowing subterranean cavern. Stylized lettering around the image identifies the artists responsible.
Nearby, the mural of a robot slipping and falling takes up the lower corner of a wall. A 20-foot-tall portrait of a woman stares disarmingly at passers-by.
Around the Fountain Square neighborhood, graffiti is more than mischievous kids damaging property. Trained painters have taken to turning the blighted walls in this art-centric area into unique creations.
