Street art is a global art movement. Street art muralists have gone from being arrested to being sought after to create large scale images on buildings to beautify and revitalize neighborhoods.
It would be naïve to think that developers haven’t used the popularity of street art to give added cachet to their properties to increase property values. Municipal budgets are including taxpayer funds for street art murals as a way to engage and bond with their constituents.
The public art movement has created a few controversies but also opportunities. It is being exported abroad and incorporated into our schools.
The work is hard. The hours are long. The weather doesn’t always cooperate. A fear of heights is an occupational hazard. The pay doesn’t always cover the bills, but the talent is awesome and the results are exciting and changing urban landscapes everywhere.
