Voted number one street artist of the year by Vandalog (See here http://www.complex.com/art-design/2012/07/the-50-greatest-street-artists-right-now/ ) GAIA is young and prolific putting up street works almost daily ,making gorgeous studio work and he is also the organizer behind projects like http://openwallsbaltimore.com/ (witch I was fortunate enough to be invited to earlier this year)
GAIA is not only an amazing artist but an amazing person,having a conversation with this guy is a event in itself.

KNOW HOPE (Tel Aviv)

A street poet through and through, KNOW HOPE punches harmony through the grey of life with prolific statements and truths, stringing words and symbols together to create harmonys that resonate with the human heart.
KNOW HOPE is a humble artist who I am sure believes in the same philosophy /A WORD OF ART stands for: ‘Removing the greyness from the soul of the city is the job of artists, musicians and poets”.
