I had the good fortune to attend South By Southwest this year in Austin, and I made it a point to document interesting street art wherever I found it. Above are the best random examples I discovered in walking about the city. This is by no means a thorough report, but just what I happened to see wherever my feet took me. Some of these have already been painted over, which I think underscores the fleeting nature of the medium.
What do you think? Ever seen any inspiring street art in your city or on your travels? Ever created any street art yourself? Let us hear from you in the comments.
Not only do I love the wall of sound timber of production; I’m just as struck by the yearning, rich tone of Richard Hawley‘s voice conveying the lyrics, which, in the context of this film (as I prefer to interpret them), celebrate individuality, creativity, vision, and belief in oneself – particularly from an outsiders’ perspective. Though the third verse suggests a romantic theme, hearing the track at the end of a film about renegade expression adds a powerful new dimension for interpretation.
