A Visual Encyclopedia of Street Artists











I just came across this awesome list of "40+ Street Artists You Should Know Besides Banksy." Some, like Blu, have been featured in this blog. And a lot of the work can be found around New York. But many of the artists were new to me, too!

My favorites? JR, (top). This work is only a few blocks from my house, and I have to say it's absolutely beautiful. I also like Thundercut's walk/don't walk signs (middle). And I could never forget Swoon (bottom), one of New York's most amazing street artists.

The mermaid on the walk/don't walk sign was kind of funny.
KidMeowKitty brought up a good question. When is the third Kiki Strike supposed to come out? What's it called? What is it about?

The last picture was awesome, in a kind of weird way. I also thought the the mermaid walk/don't walk sign was pretty cool.
When does the third Kiki Strike book come out?

Some of them were really good, some of them were more tagging than intresting stuff. Most of them were really cool though!

MY favorites were Knowhope and Elbowtoe, probably because they somehow reminded me of Edward Gorey's work.
