Meet Charlie Vaughn, owner of Uptown Artwerx. He’s the man behind the visuals – be on the lookout for Charlie‘s feature interview in The Heat Magazine.
Uptown 17th to the heart, Charlie Vaughn‘s urban art captures the essence of New Orleans‘ true culture and important neighborhoods. A lot of people forget that New Orleans is much more than the French Quarter and the CBD. Thanks to artists like Charlie Vaughn, we are faced with continous reminders of what the REAL NEW ORLEANS is all about!
