Video: Toasters Street Art

EVERYWHERE” from Toasters on Vimeo.

Beginning in 1999, you might have seen toaster street art. The symbol of the toaster has become iconic and the artists behind the widespread image, a group that of course identifies themselves as Toasters, have now released a nearly 30-minute film documenting the origin of the movement and its progress. Street art is one of my favorite elements of travel. It’s unique to the respective destination and it’s never the same, even when it’s always the same, as the root-image is with Toasters. The placement and context is always different, even in this case. Street art is something I notice and photograph everywhere I go. I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve probably seen this little toaster image around and I’ve never photographed it. Have you seen this image while traveling or at home?
