Nuria Has My Attention And She Should Have Yours Too

Photo by Falansh

Nuria Mora is one of the organizers of the MaSAT project and an incredible street artist whose work has often found itself taking over outdoor advertising space in an effort to mediate that line between public and private dialogues in our shared environment. This most recent takeover is by far the most beautiful and aggressive takeover I have seen from her, and from anyone for that matter, in quite some time. Working in broad daylight and on one of the busiest streets I can imagine, this takeover defies the covert actions of an illegal activity and embraces Nuria's role as public individual with rights to access public media space. The fact that so many individuals became a part of this takeover through their shared witness of the event is astonishing and I cannot commend Nuria enough for her brazen and beautiful efforts.

This blog loves this artists' brazen and defiant daytime illegal takeover. I hate ads on everything too, and love art and think her work is nice and could see it in my homes. But anything placed illegally anywhere, no matter how nice, is still not cool with me and not at all to be celebrated like this site celebrates it. 2wrongsdontmakeitright.

if I see something wrong, I'll try my best in order to fix it. Illegal is a subjective definition, created by political men. Nothing changes if it remains static, so all my support for those who at least are trying.

Keep informing, Public Ad Campaing!!!
