art for the sake of art

there is something so raw & original about street art. the risk.. the message.. i recently saw the movie “exit through the gift shop” and have become fascinated with the whole movement. i have always been familiar with it, but never knew much about it. it blows my mind how these artists paint their town & now some of them are selling their work for 40,000 or more! making art just for the sake of art. knowing that at any given moment they can get caught.. knowing that their art won’t be there forever.. it’s amazing to me. 

are you a fan of street art? do you have a favorite street artist? my favorite is banksy or miss van for sure.. love them both.
