Part 5: A Guide to Recognizing your Street Art

As promised, here's some local art to please your spirits this weekend.

off San Pedro

Okay, so this image might is great in so many ways. It's right off of San Pedro and the area has a sort of gloominess about it but this building painted in bold colors livens up the area, even if it's a bit hidden in the neighborhood. Here are a few shots of the building off of San Pedro and 35:

It's a bit difficult looking for street art while driving around, especially in morning traffic. I did spot a bunch of sites, but couldn't maneuver my way out of the lane, or I declined paying downtown parking fees.

Yesterday, I mentioned Scotch!, check out his work on his MySpace.While driving today, I spotted one of his stickers near Fox Tech High School, I won't divulge it's exact whereabouts, but look around very closely and you'll spot it.

Now, what have we gathered from this? That not all great art is presented in galleries or hung up on the halls of some museum, it can be found in our backyard or possibly on a street sign. Yes, San Antonio has pretty decent art and it can be found all around. Luckily, everyday I get to see this art while driving to work and for some it may be a nuisance, but for me I take pride in knowing that there are local artist willing to take a risk, and present edgy work even if its in the most unconventional settings.
