SXSW Street Art

Austin is covered in flyers and bills this week. Cops and cleaners come by every morning and tear down all the crap from the walls and light poles, and street teamers roll back by in the afternoon and put the stuff back up.

But this week is also a chance for street artists to flex for an international audience, and there are quite a few fresh wheat-pastes up around town.
