As a kid, growing up on the K-Line in Stockholm, Sweden, it’s always been a dream to go to New York to put up tags. Even though some consider Philly to be the birthplace of this subculture, New York has always been its epicenter. When me and my friend started TagsAndThrows.com about half a year ago, we had no idea how big this thing would get. Today, we’ve got a couple of thousand visitors on the site every week and more than 10,800 followers on Instagram.
Sometimes a sign just isn’t saying what it really SHOULD say, and that’s where these clever and anonymous graffiti artists come in. These improved public signs and billboards are hilarious and truthful at the same time.
The Makati Central Business District Walkway connection along Dela Rosa Street turns into a venue of self-expression among nameless street artists who started the project only a few weeks ago. Varying styles manifest in the works, all of which were painstakingly crafted by means of brushing, air-brushing, and stenciling on canvas ceilings.
Windows 95 was the best Windows version ever. So when we found out about how a Redditor and his friend “took care of a graffitied swastika” by covering it up with the Windows 95 logo, we completely understood. Bet the Windows logo design guys never saw this coming when they came up with it 17 […]

The Heidelberg Project was started in 1986 by Tyree Guyton. He decorated the houses in his neighborhood using paint and salvaged objects from the street, thereby turning a once-threatened area into a tourist sensation. With the Heidelberg Project, the Detroit-based artist has drawn attention to the plight of his home city’s forgotten neighborhoods. He calls his art 3D Graffiti, or Guerilla architecture. His vision was to transform the two block area in Detroit where his work is to be seen into a state of the art Cutural Village. I say, mission accomplished.
I met this amazing artist in person while I was in LA. His artwork reflects his life, thoughts and feelings, and his paintings can bring to light the savagery of the current system and those who support and perpetuate it. He considers himself an artist, not just an oil painter or graffiti artist.

A completely blank white room at the Au Vieux Panier hotel in France is visually sliced in half by amazing street art. The vivid installation was created by graffiti artist, Tilt, and his crew. This is kind of how I picture the left side of the brain vs. the right side.

These hoops earrings by San Francisco based DMDMetal feature a tiny graffiti writer tagging up an old-school NYC subway car. The only thing that could make them cooler is if you could customize what the miniature delinquent was writing. Check.
