Last month, 11alive's Keith Whitney and Gary Stilwell spent a week documenting the debate over graffiti versus street art in the city of Atlanta. Along the way, they came upon a young man who started out as a tagger, but years later would evolve into a full-fledged artist.
This month Brandon Sadler has both an art exhibition and a short film about to debut.
"With this show it went more on a minimal level," Sadler said. "But minimal in the sense that it still captured a presence. And I did that because a lot of it is central to my calligraphy and things like that that are based on an expressive mark and a moment in time."
Minimal might not be the first adjective you would use for many of Sadler's art pieces. With their bold colorful images, often large scale, his paintings can be found on walls and canvasses alike all across Atlanta. Now they'll be showcased in an upcoming art exhibition.
