Street Art: Let The Artist Speak

When I see a piece of graffiti it moves me, so I savor it for a moment, take a photo, and let that person have their voice. I let the artist speak. When I go on my jaunts around Seattle (these photos are from a trip to a favorite spot on Capitol Hill) and I see these art stickers, this is like finding multiple hidden treasures. I pause for a moment and I smile, I think , am entertained, and, depending on the topic, you may even see me shudder. It’s a thought-provoking experience.

“The only way to go is up”, “King Tot”, and “99 vs 1”

Cool script sticker art on the back of a sign: “Blink” and “Lefty”

“Oh my burger!”

“Despair: No Big Deal” and “Not Before Dinner”

About Rachel Heu

"Creativity is an act of defiance. You're challenging the status quo. You're questioning accepted truths and principles. You're asking three universal questions that mock conventional wisdom: Why do I have to obey the rules? Why can't I be different? Why can't I do it my way?" --Twyla Tharp, The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It For Life (pg. 133)
