This image is an ode to the street artist.
The willingness of someone to paint their
artistic message for free, in public, for the
public, is to me, a political statement in and
of itself. I think it is a beautiful thing.
I think we need more actions like this.
I remember completing the first mural
I ever did and having this overwhelmingly
gratifying, but simultaneously confusing
feeling. I did not make this for money.
So what did I spend five days, ten hours
a day, doing this for? It’s a hard feeling
to put into words, and I’m sure everyone’s
experience is a little different, but
next time you get a chance to express
yourself through any creative avenue
and share it with the public, asking
nothing in return, do it. It feels great.
