For a while now art came out on the street, accessible to anyone walking on streets in New York, Los Angeles, London and other big cities around the world. It has been said that streets are now used by art school graduates to promote their work, but who can really know the truth behind the walls.
The Spanish street artist Sr. X came to paint walls by accident. He did a spray-painting one night at a party and discovered that he can do more and more.
Since not all of his work remains on the streets, due to different regulations, photos of his art can be seen on his website where they become everlasting. For Sr. X, just like for many other artists, this has become for him a means of communication and expression. Through his work he is protesting, this is his revolution against leaders worldwide, but especially against Spanish leaders.
You can see paintings with strong messages conveyed in vivid and realistic images.
