This being the first installment of our weeklong series, I'll provide you with the basics. For a visual run down, Streetart provides a nice selection of art, from D-I-Y posters to home-made stencils — you can find examples of the stuff there. Bonus: Street-art lovers — since we're in an election year, be sure to expect tons of politically-driven street art. No, we're not talking about someone tagging all those Ron Paul signs off of San Pedro (Check back through the week for some images of downtown street art hotspots — or do you know of any? Send me images at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post 'em in no time). Another must-see is Wooster Collective, a seriously kick-ass collection of street art from around the world.
P.S. Your homework assignment: check out the above-mentioned websites and report back here tomorrow for your daily dose of street-art knowledge. Who knows? By the end of the week, you may find yourself dropping references about Banksy's work and, quite possibly, end up being the model of a perfect little tagger.
