The So Clean Auto Detail building at the corner of 10th Avenue South and Shelby is a bit of a mystery. The business has been closed and the building apparently empty for years. Given the go-go-go development culture in this part of East Nashville – heck, in most of Nashville – that such a prime piece of real estate would just sit is surprising. No doubt it will be developed eventually, but in the meantime, it’s a ready canvas. Recently, this headless but otherwise perfectly dressed gentleman appeared. He might be related to the stencils once found on a dumpster outside of Emma at the old trolley barns in the Rolling Mill Hill area. There’s also a headless suited man on the brick building at the corner of Lea Ave and Hermitage that I’m pretty sure is the work of Emily Miller, though whether she’s responsible for the one above or the stencils I don’t know. There’s also some graffiti on the building – see below. All is likely to go away when the property is developed.
UPDATE: This is apparently a Brian Wooden piece.
Located at 410 10th Avenue South, at the corner with Shelby Avenue. The parking for the building is chained off. There’s a small space in the alley it’s possible to park at, or you could park at the convenience store across the street. The suited man is on the southeast corner of the building, alongside Shelby.
