As you may have read, the last protective force standing between workers and the unbridled forces of pure capitalism are being knocked down before your eyes in the US. Or maybe you were distracted by the concentrated wealth we’re celebrating: According to their new issue Forbes estimates that there are 1210 billionaires in the world today, up 214 on last year, holding a total net worth of $4.5 trillion.  As the losers in the rat race are gradually flushed into the streets, wonder how the art in the streets will be affected?

Fountain Art Fair Redux

Yeah, Fountain nailed it to a tree this year.  But then, we knew they would. Big Ups to Joe Iurato in this new video by Roberto Serrini. Joe’s work is featured in the second half of the video, and who’s recent work refers to the crosses he bears.

These hand-made posters line city streets all over Peru and generally feature an eye-popping neon color palette and commercial graphics-inspired lettering.”

Spending Time With Felix Morelo

Ever wonder by artists put their stuff in the streets?  Felix Morelo may be able to school you on that one.

Stick ‘Em Up! Teaser

Dang! This is a spicy teaser – a scathing assessment of everyday folk as people who hate their lives is employed as motivation to go out and do art in the street.
