Atlanta-based artist Alex Brewer, or Hense, recently took some latex paint to a church in Washington DC on a crane, layering every monochromic inch of the exterior with colour, colour and more colour than you can squeeze from a rainbow storm. There’s polka dots, there are random clouds, there are random graffiti-like splotches. Short of churches with stained glass windows, we’ve never seen anything like this before. It’s wonderful stuff.
