While stumbling around Stumble Upon, I came across a street artist named Alice Pasquini that truly inspired me. Her style of street art is breathtaking, blending scenes of city with scenes of love and art. Being a long-time fan of Banky’s envelope-pushing street art, seeing Alice’s art inspired me to go on my own street art scavenger hunt throughout my city…
