    Wow I usually don’t like graffiti, but this is pretty good. Same comment as PinkPetrol: no Banksy?

    Hey I’m glad you all liked this inspiration post!

    Kaiserlino – Yeah its hard to pinpoint a lot of the authors

    Mirko and PinkPetrol – Yeah Banksy is amazing, but I wasn’t really looking for famous people per say, I was just randomly browsing around for stuff that really caught my eye. I just didn’t happen to stumble across any of his work. Maybe in the next post I will include some, because it is great!

    These are such cool photos. If you are into Urban art and Graffiti you should check out Alexander Austin. He is slowly making a name for himself in KC doing huge wall murals on the side of buildings. The Pitch actually just did a cool article about him, kind of a rags to riches story. Check it out at http://www.pitch.com.
