Street Art London was lucky enough to hang out with RUN back in December while he added this nice wall to the Foundry. RUN has been busy of late and recently put this cool piece along Hackney Road.

As soon as the warmer weather hits, New York in general — and Brooklyn in particular — always seems to explode with new visual energy that suggests street art still has a lot of life left in it.

In case you didn’t already know, the 12ozProphet Writers Forum is not just a discussion board but also a gold mine filled with incredible work like this series of drawings by Seen UA on the labels of vintage cans of spray paint. Seen was one of the most prolific and influential graffiti writers from the NYC subway graffiti movement. His work, and personality, are immortalized in the seminal documentary Style Wars and the book Subway Art.
