Last year, 2010, I published “Listen Up. STREET ART Ecuador.”
This March (2011) I returned to Ecuador, photographed more walls, talked to artists, and learned a lot more about street art.
The goal of this magazine is to share what I have learned about the artists and why and how they do what they do.
Why am I photographing and writing about street art? I like much of the art that is produced and I admire the talent, courage and world views of the artists. My personal passion - how people create and recreate their communities - is in sync with why many street artists do what they do, and I am fascinated by how they live their art. They risk their own safety and incur substantial personal costs, they are motivated by the art being dynamic (rather than static) and they are virtually indifferent to the commercial marketing of art. Street artists do their thing all over the world - from Libya to Quito - and it is influencing social, cultural and political change.
