Daily Street Art: The Friday BLOW OUT Edition!

Hi. My street art posts have been MIA for the past few weeks, and not in the good, "Paper Planes"-kinda way - sorry about that, dudes. I fell victim to newspaper deadlines, but I will neglect daily street art no longer! As a piece offering, I've got a plethora of new and fantastic street art photos and news. Let's get started.

In Boston: An art show in Davis Square

There's a graffiti-inspired art show up at 38 Cameron Gallery through February 28, and the opening reception is tonight from 7 to 9 pm. The show features works by Rene Gagnon, who "began tagging in 1985, which led to painting larger production pieces in 1986, and was considered to be the most widely recognized graffiti artist/tagger in the area, under the alias, SNO," and Kenji Nakayama, a Japanese-born artist now living in Boston, who is "focusing on photo realistic multi-layer stencils and capturing a moment of my daily life, inspired by graffiti, street art, and industrial structures." Here's a sneak preview, courtesy of 38 Cameron's website:

(For the record, here's what it's like when you try to see the real thing at the Louvre.)
