BSA Special Feature: Bernie Sand Art on NYC Street
Sand Art is a barometer of populism on the street, so it seemed significant to find that this piece by Joe Mangrum of the Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders appeared in NYC in the spring of 2016. Now that Bernie is again polling the highest again against Trump, this little video keeps popping up in our feed for the 2020 race.

Welcome to My Colorful World x Okuda San Miguel
The Spanish Street Artist takes another public victory lap for his accomplishments in this new one from Okuda San Miguel.
“When Does Tribute Become Exploitation?” Kobe Murals and Fifth Wall
“Your grief, your pain, your anguish is completely side-stepped because this is a great opportunity,” says Doug Gillem as he imagines the wife and mother who has just lost two of her dearest family in an accident. These are relevant arguments made well by him in the Street Art observer’s newest video “When Does Tribute Become Exploitation.”
As long as we’re looking at politics this week, here are two stunning video pieces on two of the Democratic contenders. Well, actually only the billionaire is a contender anymore. The programmed robotic one, no chance this time.
Michael Bloomberg Buys Media, DNC, Presidency. Enjoy!
