I’ve always been intrigued by the subversive, immediate, and sometimes jarring nature of street art.

Banksy‘s work on the West Bank powerfully conveys a longing for freedom, regardless of one’s political perspective.

Sometimes, street art can be subtle and/or whimsical — for example, The Kiss by Leon Reid IV in London would be easy to miss.  Works like this, titled Eat Out, rearrange everyday items in thought-provoking ways.

This street sign, though fake, rings true (at least for me, with my deer phobia).

I recently read about something called The Pedestrian Project, which brings street sign characters to life in unexpected ways (although for sheer awesomeness, it’s hard to beat Robocop emerging from a television to consume fried chicken).

We hope to capture some of this spirit as we raise awareness about human trafficking with The Freeze Project, which will be coming to San Diego soon (stay tuned for details).
