Interesting piece about a declining Belgian town turning itself into something of an outdoor museum for graffiti and street art.
Tremendous, and tremendously viral, piece of political graffiti on a school wall in Brazil ahead of the World Cup.

The LA Times has a nice piece about this work here: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/la-et-cm-world-cup-art-20140527-story.html?track=lat-email-latimesentertainment

He’s playing with a whole lot of stuff in the celebrity-chasing media culture we swim in these days, and others are smart enough to slipstream right behind in his wake, as with this example. Priceless.
Political graffiti I spotted a couple of days ago on a wall at the highly decorated corner of Vermont Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard in East Hollywood/Los Feliz. Will post some other stuff from the wall, though none of it is as pointed as this.
Some great images from a new book about street artists (and some folks who look like they might actually be closer to vandals) in this new book.
