Label 228: A Street Art Project Book

Art is anywhere, anytime; it just depends on your viewpoint. Subway cars in the 1970s and 1980s became mobile murals in New York City. Not every artist can afford a canvas to create on; some people’s imagination exceeds their financial or physical means. Sometimes the canvas is bigger than ourselves. Look at Banksy or Michelangelo. Sometimes the canvas is really small. And free. Complimentary of the U.S. Post Service.Label 228 is a gathering of street art executed on priority mail labels (Label 228, in the U.S.P.S. parlance) and displayed in public spaces. It’s a remarkably popular method of exposure featured by graffiti artists worldwide. These labels are free, portable, and quick and easy to exhibit, offering artists the chance to spend more time creating their work than if they were to paint and write directly on walls, vehicles, and public objects. PLUS Some of my labels made it to the book! HI-TOP
