Street Art We Love

17 Feb

We believe regardless of your likes, dislikes, hobbies, professions, etc. that artists, art enthusiasts and the average Joe alike can all appreciate a good piece of art work.

Street Art is a growing epidemic and we are PROUD supporters

Today we want to share with you some of our all time favs.

We are sure that most of you are familiar with this image…

But did you know that the person famous for making this Obama poster, so prominent during his campaign, was none other than street artist Shepard Fairey?

The rest of his work may also seem pretty familiar, and it is DEFINITELY worth the time to check out!

Another recognizable name to you may be BANKSY.

Recently, England native Banksy has gained a tremendous amount of attention in the media and here’s why…

If you are interested in learning more about street art, Banksy is a great place to get started

Learn more about Banksy and his work by checking out his website. He’s got some great examples of both his indoor and outdoor art!

Lastly, I want to introduce you to one of my personal favorites. Not as well known as Shepard Fairey or Banksy, but DEFINITELY a talented artist.

I came across Hush on Brookylnstreetart.com and I am SO glad I did.

Hush is currently living & working in the UK

However, one of my favorite works by Hush is his “In the Tenderloin” display in San Francisco, California.

I absolutely recommend reading up on Hush. His style is truly unique.

In other news..

Don’t forget to attend the Garden City Center Art Festival on June 9th AND 10th (10am-5pm Daily)

And as always we would love to thank our lovely sponsors!
