Vancouver streets art

That's great! I finally found someone else besides me who cares about street art - in other words, art made through streets:

Street art is a chance to say or show directly to anyone who walks by whatever you want them to hear or see. Advertisers do it. Christians do it. You do it everyday already with your clothes, the places you frequent, the people you hang out with; these are all indirect messages sent out to the world. This is a chance to be direct.

Street art is any art developed in public spaces — that is, “in the streets” — though the term usually refers to art of an illicit nature, as opposed to government sponsored initiatives.The term can include traditional graffiti artwork, stencil graffiti, sticker art, wheatpasting and street poster art, video projection, art intervention, and street installations. Typically, Street Art is used to distinguish contemporary public-space artwork from territorial graffiti, vandalism, and corporate art
