Living Walls 2013 gets started painting

The annual street art conference Living Walls has began again with artists from around the globe painting walls in Atlanta. The previously announced schedule of events kicks off tomorrow, including films at Callanwolde Arts Center tomorrow night and a performance by Killer Mike at the Goat Farm on Saturday night among other things.

The main focus - painting on walls - has been in gear for a number of days now. CL's own Dustin Chambers has been documenting the progress as they go. Below, we've included a few short clips of the murals in progress. We'll continue to post his short films as he completes them in the coming days.

On Thursday, look for more coverage of the conference and an interview with JR, the iconic Parisian artist, in our new issue.
