POLITICAL STREET ART
posted:
A friend of mine, Dave Savage, took these photographs between the years 2001 until today. He's been extremely kind and generous in allowing me to post some of his collection here for you. There are thousands of them. My fingers are sore from editing them. I've decided to break them up into three posts. This is the first and mostly deals with political art, The next two will be be general street at and New York City. Thanks, Dave, you're a wonderful soul. This is Dave's personal website: Savage Monsters. Visit early and often.
These photos were taken in Austin, Berlin, Washington D.C., San Francisco and New York City.
A recent trend in illustration is to employ layers of texture and/or simulate wear and decay. In many of these nature has done that naturally and beautifully.
I find this one particularly striking. The violence of the tear coupled with the doggedness of the excess tape to hold the paper in place make the piece speak much more powerfully than the artist ever intended.
