While listening to NPR recently, I caught the end of an interview with Jesse Graves, a sort of environmental street artist based in Wisconsin. Graves works with mud the way El&Abe design with live moss–combining organic elements with the tradition of graffiti.
He shuns the more common medium of toxic spray paint for mud “because it is a fundamental life-giving substance, logical for my messages.” His stencils speak of social injustice and environmental consciousness, while being witty and refreshing to the eye (and it looks like so much fun to do! … remember making mud pies?) Read an interview with the artist at Groundswell.
