For a fun post I figured I’d share some insight on some art you might have noticed walking around in San Francisco.

So you can look savvy in front of your friends and family, or even to impress a date, whenever you see these koi fish on the ground or on a wall you now know that the one and only Jeremy Novy went around town and put these in various locations.

Graffiti: Art or Trash?

In Public, Purpose on December 5, 2011 at 8:26 am

During my interviews throughout the months I sat down and asked the same question to three people. Do you view graffiti as an art form or just as trash on a wall? Needless to say I spiked some interest in the interviewees’ eyes and recorded their responses.

While dating back to Greece and the Roman Empires, graffiti has even been around since the first cave drawings on a wall. However, as society changes the meanings of things change as well. Graffiti ranges from letters to full blown wall paintings and has received stings of negativity as spray cans fall into the wrong hands. You will be hearing from Karina Lopez, Megan Stevens and Mary Joy Scott and hear what they have to say about graffiti.
