#3 Various & Gould: 12 Wishes for 2012

For twelve days we’re presenting twelve wishes for 2012 as told by an alternating roster of artists and BSA readers, in no particular order. Together, they are a tiny snapshot of the people who are part of the street art scene around the world today. Individually, each adds their personal expression of hope for tomorrow.

Today’s wish comes from Various & Gould, the kooky and clever Berlin-based Street Artist duo who we had the pleasure of working with a little bit this year. Experimenters of the highest order, V&G blast forward in pursuit of new combinations of elements without fear of failure, but rather with a love of the process and a delight in the surprising outcome. It helps that they are ridiculously serious about not taking everything so seriously, making Various and Gould perfect role models for those of us carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders.

Along with this photo, V&G send this exhortation to anybody who is holding back in 2012:

“Go for it!”
