What are you celebrating this season? We’re celebrating BSA readers and fans with a holiday assorted chocolate box of 15 of the smartest and tastiest people we know. Each day until the new year we ask a guest to take a moment to reflect on 2015 and to tell us about one photograph that best captures the year for him or her. It’s our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and saying ‘thank you’ for inspiring us throughout the year.
Butterfly is the editor and founder of the French Street Art site called ButterflyArtNews and she is also an occasional contributor of photographs and observations on BSA. A voracious documenter of the Street Art scene around the world whose work has been published in books, magazines, and blogs, this year Butterfly co-curated a London show with two French artists, 100Taur and Hisham Echafaki. A highlight for 2015 was her comprehensive and personal coverage of Banksy’s Dismaland on her site, on BSA, and in a 30 minute documentary with Lars Pederson for the French / German TV Channel ARTE
Dominican Monastery, district of Toulouse Rangueil, France.
Photograph by Butterfly
I selected this picture because of the unlikely collaboration between the two worlds – religion and street art – and they share a message of open mindedness and peace and it also recognizes street art as being as sacred as other art movements throughout history.
