What you might not know about street art and graffiti is that, for many people, it’s a matter of love. Love of art, love of paint, in fewer cases, love of vandalism and, in many cases, it’s love of human. Utah & Ether are two graffiti artists who have taken their operation completely global after meeting in the United States. They, as a couple and teammates, travel the globe documenting their often extremely risky painting endeavors.

Check out this story from The New Yorker (I know) about their history, titled “To Catch a Graffiti Artist,” which also does a solid job of outlining what exactly the graffiti world is about these days, and all its different iterations. While you’re at it, make sure you check in on their video series Probation Vacation, which, if you’re like me sounds like a dream come true.
