Eco-Friendly Street Art

Gasp and awe! The most obvious juxtaposition of urban + nature, yet I’ve never thought of it that way before. Consider my mind blown.

These are by Milwaukee artist, Jesse Graves. Using mud he “paints” on his temporary message, only to have it wash away in the rain.

Artist & designer, Anna Garforth creates beautiful site-specific work with found leaves, greens & bark. And I love her wacky upside-down milk jug planters. Gardening gone guerilla!

So I re-found this dreamy set of vintage Olivetti graphic design (so many new images!), on Veerle Pieters’ a blog which is worth a post on its own. Stunning content, but the site is meticulously detailed and completely coded by hand, her hand. Female developers with such extensive skill with both front & back-end development are few and far between. Veerle is a real inspiration.
