Creative and Beautiful Street Art
Graffiti is illegal for good reason, it causes damage to public structures and most of the time is used for gang symbols or anti-society rants. However, there is another type of Graffiti, the kind that enhances the beauty of a place or makes up for ugly or old structures.
This type of graffiti is nothing less than an art form, sometimes 30 feet big, sometimes as small as your pinky toe, but always adding something, beautifying our environment with an expression of imagination, skill and a happily optimistic artistic sense, that puts a smile on those who look at it. This is the type of street art I love to see.

Stunning Origami Creations.
Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form.
The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami. But in the right hands, Origami can be no less a work of art than any painting. The gentle precision of the folds, the creativity and the beauty of it make it a well respected art form.
