Street Art // Thursday, August 27, 2015
If you live in San Francisco or have visited here recently, it is likely that you traveled down Market Street and encountered a wonderful addition to the city's public art. Our friend and local bay area artist Lauren YS teamed up with Tatiana Suarez and Caratoes to paint a beautiful mural at Market and South Van Ness as part of Jansport's #LiveOutside campaign. We stopped by a couple of times to catch their progress, but for those of you that weren't able to or aren't able to see it in person, follow Jansport's video series document the 5-day process of painting a 55-foot wall!

Last year, Juxtapoz was able to follow the progress as JanSport launched their first street art and mural campaign and series, following the lives and process of artists in San Francisco and Brooklyn as they created a large scale mural in their hometown. In San Francisco, our friends Lady Mags and Amandalynn painted a huge, showstopping mural that we get to drive by all the time and is a great part of our daily commute. Now, in 2015, JanSport has brought the #LiveOutside to São Paulo, where Arlin & Nove collaborated on a color, massive mural this Spring that we were able to document.

Public Art programs make people happy. We aren't talking about expensive forays bringing international artists to your city lending a stunning sculpture to your waterfront views...
