A few months ago we were approached by @att go help them bring a new mural to the AT&T Perch at the @mercedesbenzstadium. Faatimah Stevens aka @thepainterbae was our top choice! . Faatimah is a incredible artist from Atlanta that you should know about. Check out the video, which is only the first one of many showcasing the project and Faatimah, make sure you follow her on IG . Many thanks to @att for supporting local talent in Atlanta and trusting us with this project. It’s been so fun, and we can’t wait to share with you more soon. . Mural unveiling coming soon!!
Earlier this year we were able to help out our friends from @heychopart in their first ever mural with talented artist @alonglastname. . @heychopart is a non for profit organization that provides dignity, community and opportunity to middle and high school aged youth experiencing homelessness through multidisciplinary arts immersion and mentorship . Needless to say @heychopart Is one of our favorite organizations in Atlanta. They do so much for our youth and community. Go follow them here, and show them love. . 📷 by @southdowntown
Artist @gaiastreetart was here last week painting a memorial mural for our dearest Matt Jones. Our friend Matt left us about a month ago, and if you know of how Living Walls started then you would know Matt was a part of our family. Thank you @gaiastreetart for such beautiful mural and to everyone that was a part of it, @forwardwarrior and friends. Thank you all so much! . You can find this mural right next to the Laura Patricia Calle’s memorial mural painted by @layqanunayawar in 2015 right across @97estoria . Ps: We love our friends, always and forever!
We are thrilled to announce that Yehimi Cambron is our 2018/2019 Laura Patricia Calle Grant. . Yehimi’s mural project, titled: “Monuments: The Original Dreamers” is a culmination of her personal experience as an undocumented immigrant with DACA, of being the daughter of undocumented parents, and of the countless migration stories undocumented youth have shared with her in the art classroom through their projects. “Monuments: The Original Dreamers” will create a platform for the children of immigrants (documented and undocumented) to begin a positive dialogue with their parents focused on their migration journey. . With this project Yehimi will conduct workshops with children of immigrants to produce hand written letters to the parents. This mural will also celebrate immigrant mothers, that despite all the trauma they carry on their shoulders, they remain the most resourceful, entrepreneurial, and selfless human beings for their families. . We can not wait to make Yehimi’s project come to life!

(Taking My Life Back) is both a group/collective, and state of mind that seeks to grab hold of time and maneuver through distractions. Not in the sense of waving a white flag on the present, nor a red, white, and blue flag. This flag of your design. It stands for taking care of your life and time and doing N0W what you truly want with it.
Today we lost a very important member of our founding family. Our dearest friend Matt Jones played a key part of making Living Walls a reality since the very beginning. We will always be grateful for all the love and hard work you put towards this organization and every mural created in 2010 and 2011. When we had very little, you gave us all the strength and smiles we needed to continue. You left a huge impression in our lives and on every artist you got to work with and we feel so lucky to have been able you have you a part of our team. Thank you for giving us so much over the years Matt Jones. . Rest in power dear Matt, we will always love you and miss you.
