Being the local art lovers that we are, me and Krystle went to Streetela this past weekend.
Featuring street art, graffiti, graphic designers and urban artists, Streetela had a laid back vibe and a cool attitude.
I loved the idea of artists coming together to form a common ground and give love to their peers. I also loved that the art was so accessible. The audience could admire an artists work, and if they loved it they could buy it , or a version on a t-shirt for a more than reasonable price.
My favorite artists featured were the "Paper Twins" These gals have been beautifying the streets of Atlanta with their pretty and playful characters. Their work is technically illegal, so they remain anonymous, but if you ask me this kind of graffiti should be mandatory in all neighbourhoods.
I also really enjoyed the work of PFL. His bold and intricate paintings are visually stunning. I would love to have one of his works cover the entire outside of the coffee shop! I may just have to settle for one of his smaller works.
Check out the Streetela website HERE and buy a t-shirt or a tote from your favorite artist.
