We recently took a trip down to Austin, TX and I was really curious about what kind of scene they would have down there. Before getting there everyone had told us about how cool Austin is, from the music scene, to the food and all around good vibes. Naturally I expected a prominent art scene as well. While I did find a few spots around town, overall the scene seems pretty small. Then again, Austin is a pretty small city. I assume it’s a mixture of UT students and local cats. We only found one piece by an artist we knew, Faile, and that appeared on the side of a now defunct gallery. (Oh yeah, Obey was there, but that doesn’t really count.) There was also a good mix of graff artists and some of the more traditional street stuff, posters, stencils, etc. Here’s a look at some pieces we found.
