"Please report as if trans people are people too: A portrait of Mayang Prasetyo" Last week in Australia a woman was murdered, and because she was a transgender sex worker most of the news stories chose to sensationalize the story, and use insulting language to talk about her. The articles rarely mentioned the very horrible statistics of violence against trans people. This is infuriating. Its bigotry, and its perpetuated on a mass scale through media outlets. I usually try to focus on positive things, but with this paste I wanted to put a little information out there, that any of the articles could have covered.
Spanish artist A. L. Crego brings street art to life by turning photos into cleverly animated GIFs. Stenciled and wheatpasted characters are able to carry out the actions depicted by their respective street artist creators and interact with their urban surroundings.
Follow Crego right here on Tumblr at alcrego to check out more of his animated creations. He also shares work on Vimeo and Flickr.
JR stuns once again with, Bird Ballerina. His team installed the piece at the Port of Le Havre in France. The haunting B&W wheatpaste spans across nine shipping containers whose precious cargo is a solemn ballerina (Charlotte Ransom) seemingly trapped high above, sitting behind her bars awaiting rescue.
