Taking it to the streets

With the success of Google’s latest endeavor to catalog famous indoor art from museums around the world, RedBull and agency Loducca kicked up the cool factor. “Street Art View” allows users to use Google Maps to catalog and share street art. It has a random art feature, latest additions, and choose an artist options. Toss in a Flickr plugin, and you get a pretty polished package.

There will be folks that see street art as vandalism and poorly done. And while there are a lot of senseless tags tagged, most are large, extravagant murals. I hope that people can appreciate the craftsmanship of most of these.

Take a trip around the world and see some great pieces, in some obscure locations. Who would think that Norway is represented with almost 20 pieces already?
