About

Being a 23-year-old journalism student at San Francisco State University has its perks. Through my time looking for sources and traveling throughout the Bay Area, I have been exposed to some of the most brilliant pieces of street art from some of the most creative minds of our time.

This blog is devoted to those pillagers of the night.  

My name is Margaret Odisho and I feel that the word “vandalism” has never been as sweet as it is today. See, the hundreds of street artists out there aren’t “ruthlessly destroying or spoiling anything beautiful.” Instead, they are blessing us common folk with their work throughout the urban jungle.

Graffiti, stenciling, sticker art, wheat pasting and street poster art is just a hint of what this blog is about. Although it’s easy to praise all things “art,” I want to do more. I want to do more than simply share the beauty of a brick wall covered in paint.

Through this blog, I want to get into the meaning behind it all, the impact it has and shine light on the stigma that comes along with holding a spray paint can.

In no way do I claim to be an artist myself or an expert on what most people can find on the walls of a restaurant in Chinatown or on a billboard towering over the 101 freeway. What I do claim to be is feign. I crave this art and when I see it, especially in the streets of San Francisco, I want everyone to know.
