Street Art Worldwide

I’ve seen a lot of fantastic street art around the world lately.  It’s really a mass movement at this point it seems.  I love the way it is evolving and maturing into a great art form.

The video here is a documentary that profiles a gathering in the favelas of Rio De Janeiro.  It shows a very bright and positive scene there.  Graffiti murals seem so rich and alive in that context.

Street artistry can come out all the better in the third world and has a different sense there.  Also, many other cultures are better at appreciating the value of original artwork.  For more gems, check out this link below to great series by RAO! in Gambia no less…
