Video: Off Book | Street Art | PBS Arts

I really enjoy stumbling upon dope street art. This PBS special features the work of Olek, a sculptor whose medium is crochet, and Swoon, a mixed media artist. Each talks about what this form of art means to them. I think the part at the end with the 6 forms of street art that (probably) won’t […]
