Social Media Culture on Street Art

In a time where a lot of people are glued to their phones, this rings true, especially when you see people head down, walking into lamp posts on the way home from work because they can’t take their eyes off of their mobile device. iHeart a street-artist based in Vancouver, has created a series of street compositions in which each image examines our relationship to contemporary culture, social networks and their connection to a whole generation of children. Artist’s work is receiving a major boost from Banksy, the elusive yet famous British artist, after it was republished on his Facebook page and Istagram.
