  1. 5 of these I like for street art of the year

    Both Fin DAC and Alex Diaz creations look like pen and
    ink drawings and I appreciate how difficult a look that is to create with paint. Bikismo’s
    chrome dog is excellent and realistic looking and C215’s amazingly captured a
    cat’s likeness with spray paint which is hard to accomplish with just pencil
    and paper. So my number one pick is Smates realistic dog and water, it does not
    speak out on any injustices, just a beautiful piece of art work.

    Runners up are
    INTI’s pretty artwork but I have no clue to its meaning. Pejac’s was funny in a
    remembering what it was like to be a kid burning ants with a magnifying glass.
    I love stencils hits home with the child and cell phone with fb likes, simple
    graphic conveying meaning, just cannot compete with the luxurious paintings on
    walls around the world.

    Finally our
    main man Banksy is always thoughtful, insightful, showing us something and I
    like the way he incorporates things like the satellite dish into his graphics and
    I think that street artists like Banksy and I love stencils are a different
    kind of graffiti artist than Bikismo or Smates. Even the artist Bordalo II from
    Portugal is sort of a sculpture/painter and to me is not the same thing as
    street graffiti artists like Banksy or I love stencils.
