Fourthwall Project in Boston has put together a show with LNY, Radical!, Tiptoe, Nanook, The Phantom, Geoff Hargadon, Zatara and Blackmath. Each artist in Street Wall will wheatpaste their work onto the gallery walls. Although the artist line up is great, the concept is the sort of thing that could really go either way and it’s impossible to say for certain. Hopefully it works out.
A walk along Brick Lane and the surrounding area is a must for everyone passionate of Street Art visiting London. These cameras painted on a brilliant pink background seem to invite the people passing by to take a picture.
Hell Ton John is a brilliant young artist and graphic designer from Tahiti, in French Polynesia. His painting is largely inspired by tattoos and Polynesian imagery, combined with patterns taken from street art. The contrast between the ancestral signs and urban graphics is beautiful.

Graffiti artists aren’t particularly known for their bookishness. After all, when you spend your nights out on the street as a graphic art vigilante, you’re missing important time that could be spent snuggled up in bed with a book.

Click through to see twenty five of our favorite finds, from the reverent to the blatantly mocking, and let us know which author’s likeness you’d most like to stencil onto the walls of your city in the comments — or get out there and contribute to our collection.
Mr Brainwash What does this piece represent to you? Gwenael: This piece is a logical follow-up to pop art – it’s a mish-mash of emblems from mainstream culture. But it’s also an even clearer response to the ‘dumbing down’ of art, that anything can be labelled art nowadays. I think if you look closely, you can see Banksy smiling in the background!

Mr Brainwash found fame through the Banksy documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop, in which he ‘borrowed’ elements of other artists’ work and became famous overnight. Do you agree with this?
