New! 80-Feet High Art at NYC Elementary School

It's the sign of the times when "street art" makes its way (legally) onto a school wall. Brazilian artists Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo (aka 'Os Gemeos') and graffiti artist Futura have just completed an 80-feet-high mural at William T. Harris elementary school, in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City. Backed by Nike and driven by New York-based creative studio AKANYC, the gargantuan piece not only shows us just how much street art has gone mainstream, but also stands as an important symbol for all generations to come. Look closely and you'll notice that Os Gemeos' signature yellow giant is wearing knee-high shorts with different colored flags on them. As Os Gemeos says, "We are using different flags painted with non-traditional colours. The idea is 'one world one voice', no borders, no separation, just everything and everyone working together for a single cause that is a better world." Awesome. via CR and HB
