Who are the people, creating these amazing street artworks during night and daytime in the metropolises around the globe? Who are those sometimes masked creative youngsters painting, pasting and above all beautifying our cities for free and usually without permission? Here are the answers!
Public Art Protagonists
For the last years, during the great street art hype between 2004 and 2008 and its gently establishment in the past months, I wanted to get in touch with the protagonists, the street art artists, the creative heads creating sometimes funny, sometimes political street artworks. What I wanted to know was their stories, the reasons and background behind their dedication for public art. I wanted to know faces, wanted to see how they work, wanted to feel the adrenalin – and I started with doing interviews.
I talked to (and photographed) some of leading street art artists and loved their often autonomous but hard way of life. And I started to write others, to get in touch with their thoughts about trendy advert, the crazy art market, the right to help fashion your city and of course their street art projects. The following list is about famous street art artists who decided to give a brief and quick interview, a insight in their artistic life. It’s the start of a great creative story, so make sure to share the following street art interviews with your friends!
