Sheepman's extensive murals behind the now-defunct Buffalo South have long been a destination for underground art lovers, and thanks to Lava Salon's Geoff Richardson, you can now find similarly striking murals in other parts of the Lowcountry. Last spring, he headed up a project to transform the alleyways of Avondale into works of art, tapping local artists like Ishmael and Scott Debus to create murals depicting everything from Dirty Harry to a beautiful woman's face. More recently, the project has moved to North Charleston's Park Circle neighborhood, where realtor Thea Anderson is working on spreading the art love even further. A building on Chateau Avenue has murals by Patch Whisky, Molly Rose Freeman, and Ishmael.
