Geo Street Art

Geo Street Art | Bibliophilia, Aestheticism, & Misc. | Scoop.it
Geo Street Art is a global network of street art apps for mobile devices which locate and curate street art around the World.

Street art in the twenty-first century is one of the most powerful and evocative art movements to emerge, a movement which Geo Street Art seeks to record, document, curate and represent in its wildest and most untrammelled forms. At street art's core is its much celebrated ephemerality, often engendered by the precarious places to which it gravitates and its sometimes unsanctioned capture of city surfaces. Thus, while some pieces may ride on the streets for years, others can last just days, hours even. No true piece of street art will last forever. Nor should it. The corollary of this is that, in terms of visual history, the photographic record is all that remains of this artistic movement. The celebration of this record is the first core pillar to Geo Street Art's mission.
