Street Art is a major contemporary art movement which crosses boundaries with specific cultural identities. It is an ephemeral art in an open air museum : the walls of our cities.
The walls speak...let them tell you their stories...
Photography and portraits are so closely linked : the first pictures ever made were pics of people. Black and white gives another dimension to this kind of photography with a dramatic impact close to esthetism.

The initial reaction when the pasted started was curiosity...then enthusiasm !
