Best Street Art


Tucked neatly into the city’s abandoned and boarded-up architecture, looking out peacefully over passersby, are the gigantic, stoic, wheat-pasted figures by local street artist Gaia. Pigeons, roosters, bears, and portraits of the artist’s grandfather watch over the city like contemporary totems and deities. An internationally prolific artist and a MICA student, Gaia has delighted Baltimore with pieces springing up in alleyways and on decrepit structures with increased fervor during the academic year. Installed all over the city, both independently and at least one piece in conjunction with Artscape, Gaia’s imagery has become an exciting component of the city’s changing facades.
