  1. Why are street artists the only artists who give their work away for free? Is it because it's worthless to begin with?

    I don't see any carpenters, mechanics, accountants, lawyers, landscapers, designers, or dentists hiding gift certificates for free services around the city.

    Think about it, you're lowering market value for everyone. Why buy street art when you can just get it for free?

    1. carpenters, mechanics, accountants, lawyers and just about everyone else does donate free work once in awhile for a good cause

      since when is street art about market value anyway?

    2. what is the good cause behind a "street art scavenger hunt"? It's not like carpenter's habitat for humanity or a lawyer doing a case pro bono based on civil rights.

      All these same artists sell work in galleries, hence there is a market value for them. I will not buy their work when I can get it for free. If you're good at something, you should get paid for it.

      If I already own work from these artists, what a shame to flood the market with more work for giveaways.

      If you want to "share your art as a gift" just wheatpaste more posters around public areas for all to enjoy.

      There is a business behind art, think about it!
