We all love street art and the prints the art inspires. Here is a place to post what you discover.

Nevada City CA (current home town)
Saw this last weekend and had to stop and appreciate it.

There's so much street art here in Austin, TX. But this is an OBEY mural that was on E. 6th St that got stolen. It was one of my favorite murals that is in the city, and completely sucks that it is no longer available for viewing.

These 3 pieces are all done by local artist Federico. Guy does some really cool street art around the city.

This was under a pedestrian bridge and was a favorite spot for taking couples pics or engagement photos. Sadly the city thought it was not worthy and painted over it.

Dexter's Laboratory that is on the side of a huge warehouse on the east side. From bottom border to the top border, it's at least 15ft in length. As huge as this single piece is, it is only part of the whole wall that has different pieces.

Yup, he has done some work there at Hole in the Wall. I actually got to meet him this morning. Got to shoot his studio for a local magazine that's doing a piece on him. Real cool and down to earth guy.

Wandering around my new hometown today, and began to notice that there's art all over the place...Go around a corner and look up and I happen to notice a familiar art style on the wall above me!
Apparently Josh Keyes had a piece in the local art gallery, and the city commissioned him to put something up on the wall adjacent to the building.
