Fucking Awesome: Street Art Sans Street by Chip Thomas

As far as I can tell, Chip Thomas is an artist living in the Navajo Nation in Northern Arizona since 1987. I saw a photograph of this piece (pictured left) on Flickr, and then cyber-stalked him through the blogosphere to figure out who he was and view more of his art.

I’m seriously digging on the motif, but another interesting dimension here is Chip’s desire to create “traditional” street art in a setting where there are no traditional streets.

I love the style of the art, as well as the approach. Check out more of Chip’s work on his Flickr photo stream.
