Street Art Is Not Just a 'Fad'

After the release of the 2010 hit documentary "Exit Through the Gift Shop" by legendary British street artist Banksy, everyone, it seemed, wanted to be a street artist.

Alec has seen this occur in Los Angeles firsthand. "I feel it’s great that more people are paying attention to what is in the streets," he said. "At the same time I am concerned that people are treating it as another fad and getting involved for the wrong reasons."
