Street Art News Round Up (Afternoon Edition)

American graffiti ... whimsy in Bushwick. Enjoyed myself so much last entry that I'm back for the afternoon edition.

The article is fashioned with the author getting more sold on the medium as the piece progresses. I must add that I like that he led with a Veng rollergate, good choice.

And on the Houston Picasso Art Attack I reported on earlier the police have their man, or at least they have his facebook page, and the man may be looking at some jail time if tracked down. The cat's name is Landeros, and the screenshots are included in the link, crazy way to pay tribute bro.
