Shades acknowledges what might be considered a unique situation, given his commercial success in the urban art: “I’m blessed. I’m an artist. People are paying me for what I do with a God-given talent. So there’s no problem with me giving back,” the graffiti artist said, chuckling. “Any child that gets to see anyone of success doing art … is awesome. Kids love that.”

Noble salvages – History is right at home as architects rethink the remnants of time.

”Generally, the industry knocks something down, sends it to somebody else and it’s recycled,” Ho says. ”What we try to do is keep things on site. Our whole perspective is to demonstrate that we can take responsibility for the things that we consume.”

”The old blond brick warehouse on Anstey station was totally covered with graffiti,” Breathe design director Jeremy McLeod says. Bricks salvaged when the building was demolished were reused in the lobby, making a virtue of the graffiti.

”The bricklayers loved it. They’re used to graffiti artists destroying their brickwork, so they got to reassemble it the way they saw fit. The new pixelated effect of the graffiti looks sensational,” McLeod says.

The Distorted Street Faces of Andre Muniz Gonzaga street art faces Brazil

Since 1997 Brazilian artist Andre Muniz Gonzaga has been turning haphazard, porous, or cracked surfaces into bizarre, misshapen faces in his unique style of street art portraiture. His site-specific paintings have appeared around the world this year in places like Senegal, Portugal, Berlin, Amsterdam and of course his native Brazil, and he’s also known for much more elaborate and polished graffiti murals. You can see much more of his work over on Flickr, and if you liked this also check out the work of Nomerz. (via hi-fructose)
