Street art and graffiti are part of the urban landscape. Like trees, sidewalks and storefront (sometimes on these things), it's ever-present. Its something I tend to take for granted. Only when I take time to fully notice my surroundings does it pop out. Knowing nothing about the art, I only notice random bits of color and new techniques. And I don't know how to define it. Posters that may or may not be old, but are incorporated into paintings, are they graffiti? That truck on Lafayette on Bond street, is that intentional or a random accident?
Becki Fuller has the answers. Not only does she have a keen eye for finding these images, she documents them. Based in Brooklyn, she follows international artists as they bring their work to this city. Noticing new trends she chronicles the work, and sometimes the work in progress.
Becki and graffiti artist Luna Park have paired up to start The Street Spot. The site features amazing photography of new work and follows artists as they move from the streets to the galleries. With witty commentary and true knowledge of the history and urban landscape, you can learn a lot about this every changing city.
