"Sticker Movie" beautifully explores the underground network behind those stickers you spot on street signs and lampposts in cities and towns around the world.
Sticker art culture is the "last bastion of anarchy" and even a form of therapy, according to some of the dozens of artists and fans who appear in the Will Deloney-directed documentary.
Oh, and mega-famous street artist Shepard Fairey -- of Barack Obama "HOPE" fame -- stars too. Still can't believe I once spotted one of his Andre the Giant slaps out in the wild. See it here.
“Sticker Movie" has its theater premiere at the Portland Cinemagic on October 6. I've seen a preview and definitely recommend checking it out.

I spotted these pieces of street art during a recent trip to Marmande in the Lot-et-Garonne département in south-western France. I'll post more photos of the town itself (famous for its production of tomatoes) in another post and add more street art snaps should I find any more hidden on my camera or phone.

I loved this short, 9-minute film by Doug Gillen -- titled "CHANGE" -- which details the work of the "Void Projects" art collective in Ferizaj, Kosovo.
Some beautiful street art and stories.

Here’s the description:
“The untold story of the world’s most famous artist, the empire he built and the movement he inspired.
“The mystery surrounding ‘Banksy’, the anonymous street artist whose illegal stencils, pranks, invasions and interventions have outraged the establishment while captivating ordinary people across the planet for more than two decades. But despite being one of the most important figures of our times, Banksy has remained an enigma, with little known about the circumstances of his life and work.
“Banksy & The Rise of Outlaw Art” finally reveals Banksy’s story, from his roots in a criminal subculture to his rise as the leader of an art revolution.
“Featuring: art promoter Steve Lazarides; Bristol graffiti pioneer John Nation; renowned street artists Ben Eine, Risk, Felix ‘Flx’ Braun, KET & Scape, plus a host of art experts and cultural commentators.”
