art never comes cheap

one thing i love about street art is that it is unavoidable. not stored away in some grave hall of culture, not inaccessible as in a rich man's home, but right in your face, in public, where you are exposed to it while you think nothing, while just passing by. the shock factor of suddenly been ripped out of your daily business, your stressful thoughts of hurrying from a to b, your whole existence as a functional being - all of this ripped to shreds by some harmless colors not trying to sell you anything, but yourself.

street art can be so powerful as you say. and these images feel powerful. i find it a great force in our popular and art culture and support it. you are correct, it can totally take you from your normal to a completely different state of being in a instant.
these images are quite harsh. where do you see these?

I love creative stencil work. As for the stickers...we have a ton of if here decorating our newspaper and mailboxes. Some of it quite good.
