Art on the Street

Neon Boneyard, Las Vegas

If art is trash, then what is street art?

I’ve found that the art on the street is charged, all over the world. Not necessarily politically, though often so, but with emotion. Or hope. And despair.

And sometimes, the most mundane piece of street art — that bit of color splattered on the corner in an alley — can offer an unexpected moment of light.

  1. Amazin’ photos. I really love street art when its done like this. As real StreetArt, great pieces and not just some scribbling on a wall!
    Got a similar piece bubbling on my private blog, with StreetArt and sticker art from Copenhagen! Thanx for sharing!
