NW 65th Street and 7th Avenue NW Graffiti


From the article Seattle's secretive graffiti world steps out of the shadows, the work is described as this:

Adjacent to the Ballard Goodwill, in an overgrown, fenced-off lot, there is this wall. From left to right are the works of Video, Huemr and Weirdo. On the left, "Video" has signed his name in curvy blues and purples. In the center, "Huemr" leaps out from sunset reds, yellows and oranges. On the right, “Weirdo” is emblazoned in surreal, futuristic letterforms that seem to materialize out of a mist. Their marks may be indecipherable to some, but there is method to each type of madness. Each lettering style adheres to a unique set of rules, patterns and techniques. When you understand the conventions, the symbols, the letters, become more apparent and recognizable.

On this bright Sunday morning, the abandoned lot adjacent to the fence containing the images is full of purple vetch (Vicia), dill (Anethum graveolens), alfalfa (Medicago sativa), clover (Trifolium), and hawkweek (Hieracium).
