I do like this, thanks for sharing.
To me, this is the purpose of art. Not to be something beautiful that hangs in a museum, protected and secured, accessible only to those who seek it out and pay admission. I like how organic street art is, how easily encounterable it is, how brief it's life is, and how powerful it's message can be. The role of the artist is magnified in times of crisis to challenge and provoke. My favorite I think is the one of the student in the bombed out school. I think there's a lot being said with that.
