Street art is one of the most dynamic and varied forms of artistic expression. It can convey the plight of a people struggling to have their voices heard with a simple emblem, or pay tribute to a fallen loved one or hero with extravagant murals. It speaks to the raw emotion and beauty of the human condition – a worn out wall on a dusty street corner, full of imperfections, vibrantly displaying love, hurt, emotion and encouragement for the world to see. Where some see a forgotten and insignificant wall, street artists see a priceless canvas to express their messages and passions on.
One such street artist, known as Fro, happens to be an avid Nintendo fan! Along with his more statement-oriented works of art, he has quite a few Nintendo-themed pieces in his portfolio. Most recent of which is a fantastic rendering of King Olly from Paper Mario: The Origami King!
