I couldn’t help but direct everyone to fellow public art loving blog Street Art Utopia as they have compiled a pretty decent list of the best street art of 2011. If you are just getting into the wonderful world of pasting, spraying or making the streets a more creative place, this list is a great place to start (short of Wall and Piece ). One of the best things about this genre is it’s diversity – you can decided what you find gimmicky/twee or meaningful and awe-inspiring. Street art has always been the public’s voice, and the art world has yielded success to those with great ideas and a call for change.
I don’t understand your point. If you are saying “I am…” cannot be followed by a noun, you are wrong. I am a person. I am the mayor. “Person” and “mayor” are nouns.
digg On March 10, 1869, railroad officials, political leaders and work gangs converged at Promontory Point, Utah, to drive in the last spike of the Pacific Railroad, the first of five transcontinental railroads built in the 19th century. The driving of the spike linked the Union Pacific line built from East to West with the Central Pacific, which had commenced construction in California. On January 28, 1986, after about 73 seconds into its launch, space shuttle Challenger exploded, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members, which included the first teacher in space.
For 16 days straight, from dawn to dusk, five highly determined Montreal-based artists (who make up the artist run collective A'shop ) worked on a graffiti mural of a Mother Nature-esque Madonna or a modern-day version of "Our Lady of Grace." Inspired by Czech Art Nouveau painter Alphonse Mucha, the crew created this breathtakingly beautiful five story mural using 500 cans of spray paint in over 50 different colors. “We been doing graffiti for a long time but this is our first large project involving the whole team,” Fluke of A'shop told The Montreal Gazette . “We’re always busy with other projects so we’ve never really had time to let [the reactions to] them sink in.
это очень не обычная и неординарная подборка. очень часто особенно в последнее время на сайте появляются работы нервнобольных, и людей с искажённой психикой. но художник нарисовавший эти работы - его гениальность в том , что он максимально близко приблизился к этой грани не пересекая её. пересматриваю в 7 или уже 8 раз , красота не открывается сразу, столько глубинного смысла ( или намёка на него , который пытливый ум воспринимает за смысл ) каждый раз что-то новое , глаз цепляется за одну деталь перепрыгивает на другую и потом глубже глубже уходит в картину. я видел гораздо более удачною технику, и не могу назвать эти работы шедевром , Но Глубина.. да , меня захватило . Очень достойная подборка. Спасибо..
This planet we live on offers us beauty beyond words. Every country has its own special region that takes your breath away with the magnificence of it. Here we can see some places that are a geological wonder that you may know about already, or maybe not? Antelope Canyon, Arizona, USA Antelope Canyon is one of the world's most beautiful canyons.

These dream-like installations are assembled, and then photographed by Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen. Just imagine being out for a walk in Norway’s countryside, turning a corner and discovering a magical forest of lamps, a tangle of chairs, or a river of books. Sadly, once the photograph is taken, Rune removes the installation, the only proof of it’s existence being these images… sort of like waking up from an amazing dream that you could have sworn was real. As an artist, I believe strongly that art itself should be questioning and bewildering as opposed to patronising and restricting.
