Unseen Austin is a gallery of pictures, mostly from camera phones. The scenery is typically unique to those of us that live within Austin, TX. More information can be found here: What is Unseen Austin?
The Unseen photoblogs started in 2009 with Unseen Denver. With help from locals in other cities, the Unseen Photoblogs have grown to other cities. Unseen Austin is made possible through the help of @craigforster.
I love living in the city. I grew up running around in busy streets and I love their unique, dirty charm. I also love the anonymous fame of street artists, taggers and armies of Sharpie shit talkers. Beyond that there is an element of irony to things like a styrofoam cup stuck in a fence, or torn jeans hanging on someone's tree. This is a document of the cleverness, creativity and strangeness of our neighbors.
Unseen Austin will be updated at least once a day until we run out of pictures.

Anytime you're walking down the street in Austin and you see something inanimate and interesting. Some of the things that we've taken pictures of are stickers, litter, flooded intersections, alleyway scenes, unique city views and of course clever bits of vandalism.
This site isn't just about graffiti. It's about the living city and the different anonymous and semi-permanent signs that people were here. Sometimes that means a dope mural, but that's just one of the ways that the city communicates. If you've seen an amazing piece, please send it to Unseen Austin and we will add it to the collection.
Absolutely not! Please do not identify yourself as an outlaw, and please do not identify any of the outlaw artists featured in Unseen Austin. That way if Unseen Austin ever gets subpoena from the city, or something like that, we have no evidence against New York City artists.
YES! If you recognize a piece and you know it's name, please let us know so we can label it properly.
Sucks to be you...move to Mount Kisco. If you want information about how to put a stop to this urban moral decay, I suggest you contact the Austin Graffiti Abatement Program. Best of luck, chump.
