The Obama street-art phenomenon isn’t slowing down.
Tracy Clayton is an “avid reader” and a “hip hop purist” who grew up in Miami. His mother is Filipina and his father is African American, which gives him an outlook that he wants to “share […] with the world.” Tracy is a “wannabe photog,” so when he’s not at his day job working as a communications consultant in DC, he’s “letting the shutter fly.” This shot is from the streets of the capital.

Robert Stribley is a “restless” Aussie/American information architect in New York City. He likes taking pictures of the street art in his neighborhood.

This last one isn’t street art in quite the same way — but it’s art that happened on the street through the lens of Mike Rengel. It’s also from St. Louis, and it shows Wyoming St. and Grand St. reflected on a huge Obama poster in the window of a campaign office.

The “Grand St.” sign shows up just below Obama’s right eye — as though Mike positioned it there as a commentary on Obama’s political vision.tags 2008 art barackobama DC FL generalelection IL MO NY streetart
