Snyder - Building Community Through Perfect Placement
Even when it doesn't seem he is trying to, Snyder is even building community in Carlsbad based on his perfect placement alone.
Like this here. Snyder placed his Dunce character at the perfect spot in a corner, in the heart of Carlsbad Village. Snyder's piece was not commissioned, but the property owners seem to enjoy it, and Dunce has been riding for months on end.
After Snyder's piece had ridden for so long, apparently another artist noticed it and got motivated to go and place a complimentary, and impressive, large hand painted piece next to Snyder's.
It seems that after so many years building community through street art, Snyder is building community based on the sheer placement of his street art.
Dig it. Stay up!
