For over two decades, Paint Louis has drawn graffiti artists from around the world to the floodwall just south of the Arch, giving them an opportunity to practice their craft and beautify the city’s riverfront. Once again, The Arts STL photographer Karl Beck was there to document the proceedings. Click on the photos below to enlarge; to see our photo gallery from the 2018 edition of the event, click here.
Curious how Paint Louis came to be and how it’s put together every year? Be sure to check out this interview with Paint Louis organizer John Harrington, conducted by friend of the site Benjamin Sawyer.
