One More - Gaia

I don't know how many of you are familiar with the artist Gaia or who has seen any of these pieces around, but I've seen pictures of these online and never realized that they were so close.  He's posted and painted a number of fantastic pieces right around our school so check them out if you haven't yet.

Here's a sample of some around here, and you can check out his flickr for even more: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gaiastreetart/page2/

This one is so beautiful in person, it's on North Ave, but tucked away behind some buildings a little bit.  They are massive too, you can't tell the scale in the photo.

  2. Woah, we should try to meet him then! I didn't even know he was so close to us. I keep finding out that all of my idols are the same silly kids as me.
