A nearly three week installation of Street Art in Oslo, Norway by Faile, SEEN, D*Face, The London Police, Shepard Fairey, Vitaly Rusakov (Mizer), Logan Hicks, Will Barras, Martin Whatson, Galo, and Nicolay Aamodt is taking place right now as a way to raise awareness and funds for Human Rights Watch.

Street Art fans are typically more in touch with the needs of communities and are fierce advocates of the rights of all people, so BSA is very excited to start this post by offering you with the opportunity to give money to Human Rights Watch – So, 1. GIVE to HRW first, and 2. Look at great pics second.
