This fortnightly, we have a sampling of street art from Rome, and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In the old city of Rome, Centro Storico, stickers, signs and posters are most of the street art. By that I mean, not Roman buildings and sculptures, nor the outdoor displays of Renaissance glory. I’m talking contemporary art, mostly by just people showing off or having a good time, with a dose of commerce and humor tossed in. Billy-burg, Brooklyn is a hipster ghetto and so lousy with folks showing off with all sorts of things, many with serious social and political commentary built right in. Today’s image is a toe-dip in that ocean, a tease.
