Inspiration for free art

Free art for all

Spotted this on PSFK and thought it was a great idea. Back in the day a certain popular artist preached art for all…. he then started selling to Brangelina and making films and in turn shed loads of cash. This feels like a bit of a move back in the original direction.

Nicole Bourgea, a Washington resident has embarked on a project where she goes out and paints everyday folk doing their everyday jobs that they perform every day. She creates her one day masterpieces and then returns the next day and places the finished pieces where it was painted with a note saying it is free for the subject of said piece.

Although Nicole is not your traditional street artist, this really is the essence of creating something on the street and leaving it there for all to see and for it to be taken away gratis.
