I love CLET’s infographic manipulation of signage. http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mc7sytczP71r70353o1_1280.jpg

----- Terry Kuny 12.12.12 20:44

Anything Banksy is pretty great, but I’m going to go with an local artist here in Montreal, Earth Crusher. This is one of my favourites: http://www.earthcrusher.com/warmural.jpg

And you can check out the rest of his work here: http://earthcrusher.com/

----- Sharon 12.12.12 19:38

There is a bar here that used to host some great bands. It was dive-chic before that was nostalgic and grand. I saw guitar wolf there when I first turned 21. The whole outside parking lot was always host to some amazing full-blown graffiti murals. I miss them so much.

----- jess 12.12.12 19:22

would definitely have to be my own reflection as i walk to work. it’s a performance piece - VERY ironic.

I just think it’s so creative simple and fun.

----- Erin 12.12.12 04:42

TBH, I have a very narrow definition of what is “‘good’ street art” to me, and I don’t care how trite it is to bring up Banksy: his work is clever enough for me.
Also, my favorite piece I’ve seen on the street wasn’t even really art per se: a piece of paper stapled near a telephone pole of a particularly long light with the words “Accio Broom” on it.
Sorry…

----- Lis 11.12.12 23:58

There was an artist who filled in cracks in buildings and pavement with Lego. I can’t remember who, though…

----- Ray 11.12.12 21:30

Ashley mentioned and linked to some happy mailboxes. I live a block away from them and of all of the many conversations those two have had during the elections one mailbox said “I voted”, to which the other replied, “me too”. This week they are just plain old mailboxes again (thanks to the city of Denver I am sure) but who knows what they will be talking about next.

There are some storm drains in Tulsa, OK with three black cat faces painted on them. They are random and neat, but can also be creepy when walking in the park at night.

I dont get to see much street art in auckland as the council is pretty quick at taking it down (even stuff where the artist has gotten permission from the wall owner or has actually been comissioned to do some work) but it was really nice to see some well done letterform graf up on the side of an inner city cafe one day.

----- Mark rous 09.12.12 23:40

Street art in Atlanta is quite amazing … there are so many great pieces to see. Artists come from around the world to paint our walls, but this is one of my favorite. ROA came to Atlanta to paint this as part of the Living Walls conference: http://goo.gl/8l0DW

a piece in Venice on Abbot Kinney - love the uniqueness of this subtractive approach to street art, and that the anonymous Portuguese artist leaves a recognizably Portuguese portrait (at least to those of us who recognize the family traits)- http://in.5thvillage.com/p/306471133782710226_53035484/

The Fun Factory in Long Island City, Queens, New York. It’s right next to PS1 so you can walk through and see some of the best street art, graffiti and stencil work in the world and then go to one of my favorite contemporary art museums. Just take the 7 train.

----- Seth 08.12.12 08:56

I adore the graffiti art of Scribe. It covers streets and buildings all over the KC area and I feel amazed and inspired to believe just by looking at it. With a fun childlike imagination he quickly became a KC favorite and was recently choosen as the official artist for Children’s Mercy Hospital. Now you not only see his work on the sides of buildings and in alleyways, but in ambulances blasting down I-70 and in childrens rooms, bringing a smile to everyone. http://www.flickr.com/photos/23891878@N05/3900109671/in/photostream/

----- Kirsten 08.12.12 08:02

I’ve always thought the Tiki Jay street art of the Easter Island heads around LA were cool. He even did some cement castings and placed those in various places - pretty sweet!

Just a taste of the SD streets Romali has fresh style, its his own style and he demands a lot of respect from writers all over. Shout out to writerzblock, wildstyletechnicians, and tHE aRMORY.

I love random yarn bombings. They always give me a good laugh.

My favorite was subway art. In one of the passages leading between different subway lines in the NY subway, there used to be the most cynical text. Everyone who walked by it must have damned and blessed the artist for capturing the daily grind so well.

I like these “Compassion Wizards” Ryan Henry Ward puts up around Seattle.

When I was in Spain, specifically in and around Madrid, the walls along the freeways were practically covered in colorful art and I thought it looked so much nicer than just the usual drab gray concrete.

I know it’s been mention already, but ROA is hands down one of my favorites. Impossible just to choose one piece, though.

A wall that used to get covered in gang tags. Hasn’t been touched since this MASSIVE ROA piece was put up. Love the view of Chicago over the shoulder!

I really love this piece of street art I saw while walking around in San Francisco a few years back. The just make an ugly part of the sidewalk that much awesomer! http://web.stagram.com/p/81715341_3010885

I can’t say I have a favorite, but there are a lot of great pieces around San Francisco.

----- Lara 07.12.12 17:52

I used to pass by this one a lot in SF, located at 6th and Market. It was done by identical Brazilian twins and has a sense of sorrow and whimsy to it at the same time:

oh dear, dont know much about street art, entering here so I get a shot at handing this giveaway to my twelve year old. So here’s someone everyone knows: Banksy. But I remember in the 90s this great poster campaign around LA, very political, one poster was ‘Contra Diction’ a reference to the Iran Contra affair. These were very clever, graphic, slapped on overnight and next day all over the city. No memory of who it was but it was wonderful

There is a new mural that went up over the last week in Miami during Art Basel, At 99 NW 25th Street, by Greg Simkins, Dabs Myla, and others. Wonderful piece. I’ve been following the progress at @craola on Instagram but can find no other reference to it on the net as of tonight.

I’m partial to the Toynbee tiles, just because of the bizarre conspiracy theory narrative behind it all.

Just looks good.

One of my favorite pieces of street art must be made by Aryz in Poland.

http://www.aryz.es/media/img/aryz/gallery/97747734bf5c8a032e62f5ccb3d0ee69.jpg

Three reasons why it’s a great piece of art:

1) The style is mind blowing and unique. (I just can’t wrap my head around how detailed it is.)
2) It has turned a giant, hideous, grey wall into something beautiful.
3) It’s made in my homeland, from which i moved at a young age and miss very much.

----- Mati 07.12.12 15:07

Both this structure and piece by Shida are so inspiring to me!

Anything by Connor Herring! He had a piece down in Chelsea and then they painted an ad over it :(

Tasteful use of gold foil is always a good idea…

Bowery/Houston Street Graffiti Mural Wall In NYC - http://bit.ly/xNnqe3 - After finding out Keith Harring was the catalyst to this ever changing wall on Houston, I love it even more!

I enjoy any street art that happens on signs, so imagine my delight when I saw this one:

Bansky’s street art always fascinates me. I’m particularly fond of the girl in the diving helmet with the bird…

Not exactly rogue street art, but I love anything by Alexandros Vasmoulakis and would love to see vibrant art like his on the walls of my streets.
