My friend is a "street artist" in that he'll paint a piece...spend weeks on it, and then in the night go out and hang it somewhere, whether on a city wall, bus stop, sidewalk, bench...take a picture of it for his portfolio and then leave it there. I should mention that his work is very good.

Sometimes the art is taken down, defaced, pasted over, thrown away, vandalized, or in some cases they stay up for months at a time before anything happens to it.

He does this anonymously with a few other people. I consider myself an artist and I can see "art" in just about anything, but I guess I can't understand the point of spending weeks painting something and putting your emotions into it and then leaving it somewhere where it can only be appreciated by a few, and more often then not, not getting appreciated at all and it getting scrapped.

I guess I'm not that particular breed of artist.
