What If Art Ruled the World?

Street art is as fascinating as it is controversial. Some consider it vandalism, and although I may agree in some cases, I disagree with this cultural phenomenon being put in such a judgmental umbrella category, and/or being dismissed as an unavoidable form of urban decay. As a free and “obvious” platform for reaching the public, and a way of conveying potent messages, attracting attention and thereby facilitating much needed change, street art’s increasing power is indisputable. As street art gains more and more recognition, a strong sense of activism surrounds it; to the extent that some artists already have gained a massive number of followers, worldwide media attention, or even work commercially.
