Street Artists the Wooster Collective

The Wooster Collective is a non profit organization dedicated to promoting street art on a world wide basis. In their shows are some of most prominent and well known  street artists including many profiled here such as JR, Faile, and Chris Stain. The website was started in 2003, and the group itself began in 2001. The group produces artwork and also books that include drawings of the collective.

Here is a facebook link to the Wooster Collective’s  homepage has a hilarious picture of a man with an Afro made of real tree leaves:

For those non New Yorkers like myself Wooster is a street located in the SoHo  district of New York City.

In this clip we view a project titled the ” Sheboygan Project.”

For a very successful show the Collective was asked to put on a show celebrating street art that existed in a well known building that was going to be refurbished into some condos. Many artists that participated are renown in their field such as Shepard Fairey, Swoon,  and Graffiti Research Lab. Famed artist Richard Hambleton even attended in person and made an installation.

A show is going on this year to celebrate 10 years of the Wooster Collective. See famous street legends from all over the world!

The Collective also has a youtube channel. This is one of my favorite clips from that site:
