Blue The Warrior Lightens The Mood

Blue the Warrior recently tagged a slew of buildings with cute, colorful characters that will leave most people with warm and fuzzy feelings. Street art is often political, anti-establishment or the vehicle of some existentialist message -- think Banksy -- sometimes though, it's good just to lighten the mood.

One of the most appealing aspects of street art is the serendipity of it. When one goes into a museum or a gallery, one knows what to expect: art. Walking through the halls of such places, one may find something interesting, though the effect is not the same as casually strolling down a street and by chance, happening upon a slew of kawaii animal creations adorning the side of an otherwise dour and forgotten brick wall. This artwork combines two things that go very well together: spontaneity and levity.
