While traveling, I don’t always get to visit art museums. Don’t get me wrong, I love art museums and in fact I hold a minor in Museum Studies and Art History, but art museums don’t house art of the people. The streets are where you find it.

From a tag to a sprawling mural, street and graffiti art are the tattoos of a town. Like ink to skin, paint to walls tell stories of the people who live in their confines.

I don’t know the artists who use brick and skin as canvas but I can begin to understand the buildings an people that wear them. Some are a whisper, some are a yell and each one has a different story to tell.
