Untitled by Alvin Carter

Mural Near Selby Ave.

Created by Alvin Carter in 1996, this untitled mural is just off Selby Avenue in St. Paul. The features are sharp and striking and there’s something very resolute about that woman’s face. There’s a certain power there.

I like the rough texture the brick gives the mural–it’s a good example of an artist working with the space at hand as opposed to changing the space to make it easier for themselves.

What do you think?
