Street art has been documented in my blog a few times – from An Epic Faile to Williamsburg Bridge: Art on Art to 5 Pointz to The Logo as Street Art… and more finds (Williamsburg, BK).
It inspired me every day on my strolls around Williamsburg and Manhattan. I like the temporary nature of the works; the ever-changing nature of the art form keeps my eyes open to anything that may have been pasted up, stenciled, tagged, or painted, overnight.
I would also like to thank two fellow bloggers – authors of the blogs: The big picture view for Tisha and massachusetts is wicked awesome – who have nominated me for the Versatile, and Kreative Blogger Awards, respectively. I am honoured that my blog has been recognised; it is really heartening to read inspiring comments about the content I post. Tisha and Mel: Everyday Art Inspiration – street art coupled with life quotes – is in dedication to you both. I really appreciate the support from you both and look forward to reading more of yours.
I hope you enjoy the artworks found around and out, in Williamsburg and Manhattan!
