Schönes Video eines Interviews mit Shepard Fairey über eine Aktion, bei der er mit Kids Streetart zu sozialen und politischen Themen machte. Toll!

The New York CityKids organization is a non-profit youth development program that brings together young adults in inner-city communities. Under the theme "A Positive Thought Cannot Be Denied," CityKids worked with contemporary artist Shepard Fairey last month to organize a series of murals and expression of ideas on issues of social justice. These topics ranged from teen violence to environmental and education-related issues; the participating youth were encouraged to build on Fairey's street-art aesthetic to share their perspective through art.
