  1. I loved this! I just wish there were more pictures! Great post, I am working on compiling a list of street art from Portland Oregon (sometimes called little New York). Stoked to see other compilations of street art.

  2. Thanks for that, a familiar story even in Australia. Portland is reasonably progressive though isn’t it. I’m sure the street artists make it more bearable. Are you one of them? All the Best Rod
