Color Graffiti by Hense

Hense painted historic church art installation washington dc 3

A historic church located in Ward 6 in Washington D.C. underwent a massive transformation thanks to up and coming contemporary artist, Hense. The building now stands as a vibran, colorful art installation exhibiting Hense’s abstract style and street art edge. Seemingly every inch of the structure’s exterior is marked with a series of varying colors, shapes, splashes and geometric accents. The large scale of the piece captivates viewers who marvel over the lively and fun building that had otherwise been unnoticed for years.  If you enjoy this kind of thing as much as we do, don’t miss the painted favelas of Brazil or our feature article on Cities of Color: 10 vibrant, colorful cities around the world.  For now, this work of art by Hense is an instant classic in our books here at TheCoolist.
