Aniekan and iwillnot bring political art to the streets of D.C.

Down in D.C. this weekend, I spotted some striking political art — new to the streets.  The Nigerian artist Aniekan Udofia’s huge portrait of a gagged George Washington on the corner of 14th and U and iwillnot’s postals satirizing Sarah Palin’s use of the word “refudiate” stand out.    Photos by Lois Stavsky

Here are some more favorite pieces on the streets of DC — from artists whose works I’ve seen and loved for years to those I just discovered: Chor Boogie, Decoy, Ben Tolman, Aniekan, Astrotwitch, I Will Not and BK Adams.
