Fwd: SOME AMAZING RUSSIAN STREET ART, MY ADDICTION TO THIS ART FORM GROWS








I think the first street art I ever saw was a big water tower painted with Ho Chi Minh's face. 
You can read about it here 1971, I couldn't believe it was that long ago. We all believed in the blue stripe theory.

Maybe it was the Citgo Sign which they, you know them, said, they we're taking down. Voices could be heard all over the place on what a bad plan that was. That's worth a google.


Saw a guy doing sand painting on Boston Common section of walkway and another one in chalk.  There are snow and ice sculptures to be seen. It is really nice to open your eves and look for it. Not a new plan to decorate, remember reading about cave walls. 

Just checking out the site looking for a picture of the cup and saucer which I didn't find but instead I found the Volkswagen Beetle Spider, perhaps you already know about this bit of street art. Bit, it's huge ! 
Avoca, Iowa: Volkswagen Beetle Spider

Would be considered out in the Corn Field Art.

Sorry got side tracked, Russian Street Art and this guy is extremely talented. 
I may have some overlapping here of pictures but google this guy, totally wonderful work.
With each new find my addition to street artists grows.

Makes ya want to run right out with paint and a ladder and a friend to hold the ladder and your head examined for even entertaining these thoughts. Better still keep that camera handy cause their are very talented people creating art, possibly in your town. If you find these folks please share.
