A few years ago, Philly was the premier city to roll out 500 high-tech Big Belly trash compactors. Today, these treasured rubbish receptacles have been affectionately transformed into works of art known as “litter critters” within the South Street district between 2nd and 10th street.
The wonderfully inspiring Mural Arts Program is behind the initiative as part of their Big Picture Educational program, which was created to encourage social responsibility in youth ages 10-14. The students in Big Picture produced the drawings and Ben Woodward & Tom Lessner of Space 1026 helped to design as wraps.
¡Muchísimas Gracias a Chris Gatto!

Banksy’s dropped a new piece in central London (corner of Cleveland Street and Clipstone Street to be precise). It’s been speculated that the painting was created in reaction to the recent arrests of fellow street artists, Invader and Revok, in Los Angeles.

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Alfred Barr’s diagram on Cubism and Abstract Art, Daniel Feral revised the layout to illustrate the history and many influences of street art and graffiti.
This diagram was produced as part of PANTHEON‘s exhibition: an accumulation of 33 artists brought together to interpret and visually represent the journey of street art and New York City’s central role in advancing the art form to other geographies around the globe.

We rather like Akin Bilgic’s SF Mirrors Project. The function is antithesis of advertising billboards and posters in which companies constantly remind us that we are hopelessly incomplete without their their goods/services. The uplifting messages on these mirrors are designed to “spread a bit of random happiness” to the good people of San Francisco as they go about their days, and nights.
