I like recession inspired street art, and Hargo’s “Cash For Your Warhol” series has really caught my eye. Just a few days ago I was watching television and it seemed like half the advertising time was taken up by adverts for Cash4Gold.com.

Recession-Inspired Street Art

How I haven’t done this post yet I don’t know.

Street art is a chance for the average Joe to voice their opinions and concerns and to connect with the rest of the public.
