Notorious for their angsty and anarchist tendacies, it’s hardly ever a shocker when news breaks of “street artists taking a stand”. However, when one discovers that stand is against the streets themselves, a grafitti artist’s canvas, jaws tend to drop.
Artists like Kidult, Blu, Maismenos, and Katsu are revolutionizing the street art scene, taking it off the sides of buildings and construction sites and delivering it to a more permadent home, on your computer screens. The mission: to create peices best experienced via the web. Using the internet how the streets were used in the past, these neo-graffiti artists take full advantage of the platform, actualizing what may seem fake or impossible, and making it look damn good.
