Street Art // Monday, November 12, 2012
There’s an interesting article about the history and fate of this mural that once stood directly across the street from a McDonalds in Huntington Beach, California. Saeed Danosian painted the mural in 1992, who once worked at McDonalds as a manager. It was recently defaced by a very clean lettered “Vegan” but ultimately got buffed.

Street Art // Monday, November 12, 2012
Local residents of an Atlanta community decided that they did not like a particular commissioned mural and without permits took things in their own hands by poorly covering the work with gray paint. The mural causing conflict was painted by French muralist, Pierre Roti, and was organized with permits by local nonprofit Living Walls.

New York Mta Subways cars get wallpapered by Kaws

Street Art // Friday, November 09, 2012
To have your artwork cover the inside and outside of a New York subway car is a rare opportunity for any artist, especially one who initially made his name in the streets with graffiti. Kaws who has gone on to become an accomplished artist and businessman in a number of platforms, was also recently invited to participate in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade with his own signature balloon.

Hyuro's newest mural of surreal Imagery

Street Art // Thursday, November 08, 2012
You got a whole family trying to live on your back!  Hyuro’s surreal imagery is far different from the majority of the street art being created right now. Often painting the female gender in a black and white palette, her work is engaging, challenging, and draws the viewer in to investigate the meaning.  This newest piece shows a shoeless female wearing a house on her back with a number of characters trying to get in.
