Graffiti proposal drags street art into the mainstream

Pin it

This work of "street art" comes to us, it seems from Texas (and most likely Houston — anyone wanna weigh in with details based on, uh, not much more than the video itself?)

Videographer Alex Luster created this somewhat choppy clip of his friend Shannon proposing marriage via mural. Shannon himself enlisted a street artist called Ack!, who in turn had help from some unidentified children. Basically, a bunch of people go together to get Shannon’s girlfriend Jessica to say yes… or at least check a box under that word.

It may have worked, but this kind of thing always forces us to ask you: has street art lost its edge?
