Seen on the streets

Inverted. Digging it.

One of the things I’m always really excited about when I get to a new city is soaking up the street art scene. Perhaps it’s from growing up surrounded by graffiti, but I always keep an eye out and feel that when the creativity of a society is exciting it bursts out onto walls around a city it’s a good thing. Not everyone agrees with me, but I love it and love digging into a new scene. I spotted the above piece and it caught my eye because I’m not used to seeing this inverted stencil effect and thought it was a pretty original take on the idea. I’ve also been following the guys at ARTKORE, the oldest graffiti crew in the country, and am really looking forward to checking out the recently released Graffiti Asia book which is supposed to be packed with images and history of the scene here. I missed the launch of the book at Paper People the other night because I was on a plane, but hope to check it out very soon.
