Creating Identity through Art

Urban signage, Community Branding, Abstract Wayfinding… I’m not quite sure what to call it, but these artistic expressions have begun to dramatically transform the slums to which they are applied. Creating pride and a positive association to place within the communities by simply using paint and imagery. If nothing else, these have become tools to create a greater sense of self worth for their neighborhoods, while acting as a catalyst to generate morale and an uplifting appearance from the inside out.

Here are four different inspirational videos that everyone should see and share if you support their movement.
