When you live in a city like London, street art is so integrated into the urban milieu that it becomes easy to casually glide past a thought-provoking artwork (that just-so-happened to be seductively created whilst avoiding authorities in the dead of night.)
That is not to say London-dwellers do not appreciate the sparks of colour and wisps of paint, but when wandering more east to areas like Shoreditch or Camden, it becomes strange not to have a piece of well-thought-out hues in your line of sight.
Today – even your second-cousin in Shreveport has heard of Banksy – and the sexy street art scene is now teeming with renegade talent. We hope this blog will rekindle an appreciation for the bandits who paint our city into an even more beautiful juxtaposition of old and new.
Let’s celebrate street art today, in London and abroad:

TwistedSifter deserves an Emmy, or Oscar or Heisman trophy or something. They always have the coolest stuff on their website, I want to be them.
Sainer and Bezt are two incredible street artists from Lodz, Poland. Together the duo are known as ETAM CRU and their building-sized murals are well-known in the street art community. Their artwork takes them around the world and they are kind enough to share their stuff online on their personal website as well as Facebook, Behance and Instagram.
Below you will find their best mural work from 2013. I can’t wait to see what these two accomplish in 2014! Be sure to check out the links above more much more.

Beautiful. The bricks in the background give a texture that is its own artistic element. An example of how the best graffiti works.
