One of the most beautiful and surprising things about my birthday trip to Montreal was how many murals are around the city. The creativity and craftsmanship that went into each was astonishing. I highly recommend a walk down Saint-Laurent Street to see these works of art in person.
Mike found a link on Street Art Utopia, which recently posted the 106 best street art photos of 2013. This gallery shows my favorites, but the site is a wealth of artistic and clever pieces. Take a moment to peruse their gallery to see that there’s more in the world of street art than just Banksy.
Someone recently laminated over “Brooklyn” on the 23rd St A/C/E Subway station entrance with the original name. An over-zealous Peter Stuyvesant fan? A shareholder in the Dutch West Indies Company? An Old Amsterdamian? Dunno. But what I love is that this “street art” actually prompts us to wiki. Now if that isn’t clever, ik weet niet wat er zou zijn.
