Photos: Denver's best street art as chosen by a graffiti-scene veteran, part one

Big photos below.
Earlier this month, we shared twenty images from a video entitled "Denver's Best Street Art" and asked the question, "Do the images deserve this title?" Shortly thereafter, we were contacted by a twenty-year veteran of the Denver street art scene who answered "no" -- and then came up with images that he feels offer a better representation of "some of the best writers in Denver."

He's absolutely right about that, as you'll see in part one of his top twenty picks below.

Our curator asked to remain anonymous, to keep the focus on the art -- and thanks to gifted photographer Gary Glasser, aka "The Anarchivist," who's kindly allowing us to use his images, the pieces look undeniably spectacular.

Because some of the pics are tough to appreciate because of our blog's relatively narrow width, we've presented two views of the most horizontal among them, with a section featured large over a shot of the piece as a whole. Check them out below -- and keep an eye out for part two, coming soon.

These are great, but there should be descriptions or details on the artists and where these can be seen.

Can't post locations or the city will know where to cover and artists wouldn't be able to paint there anymore

I Love the antique mall piece. It's classic street art of expression that meets modern conventional designs for todays advertising market.

Much better but still didn't add the David Choe piece? Glad to see Rob TheGropes Roybal and Gary representing though.
