street art

Cities in Pixie Dust is a big fan of art you can access in the everyday world, without going too far out of your way to see it - such as street art, graffiti, murals, stickers, found art, etc.  Cities are places where people interact with each other. Sometimes they choose to interact with each other, and sometimes they’re forced into it.

So many people in the city go about their day with a hustle and bustle and don’t have time to look around. Street artists take the time to make something and put it where everyone can see, on the sly, while trying not to get caught “defacing” property. Some people would call a lot of street art a criminal act and not a work of art, but CPD disagrees. There is a lot of stuff you could do to get yourself into trouble, but painting on a wall or sign is probably amongst the lesser evil things out there.


Recently, and we don’t know how we’ve missed this site for so long, CPD stumbled upon an amazing blog on the Village Voice – Camille Dodero’s Streetscape Blog. So you should go check it out.


And here are some pix of street art that CPD has stumbled upon in the recent past. There will be more to come. Or hit up the flickr for graffiti and murals…
