Highlights: Jan 6 -12
Last week’s most popular post were technological, galactic, street credible, fashionable and ugly. Don’t you ask what’s wrong with those Widewalls writers? This is all on you my dearest reader. These are the topics of the most read posts of last week. First one that really went through the roof at the beginning of last week was the mural app that Street Art London improved just recently re-launched. Next highlight followed the same day with the presentation of Miles Donovan’s collage-space-art. Donovan’s art is rooted in true NASA origin, which makes it even cooler. The Street Update did what was expected of him. It presented 2013’s most impressive murals and what logically the most visited post in the bygone week. Next was kinda obvious as well. Why? It looks so fucking cool to put fashion label logos on Montana spray cans. It also fucking cool to draw the American flag on a wood panel, combine spray paint with fine painting and call it Ugly American.
