Vancouver based Street Artist Indigo works in emotion and poetry and sometimes even the woods. Raised in a log cabin by artists and activists, Indigo knew the forest long before she began painting on the street. In your head without getting in your face, the lifetime dancer celebrates the human form and it’s expressive ability . . .

Radical! takes his work seriously, and he has been seriously getting up in New York with his comically anthropomorphic characters and their extended appendages.

The very varied Hellbent history hits all the touchstones of street art in the last decade; spray paint, stencils, wheat paste, stickers, and rollers.
