Trump Is A Dream Poster in Graffiti Alley

Modica Way in Cambridge is host to all types of street art: murals, graffiti, stenciled messages promoting social justice and other political causes, and the sort. Once in a while, though, there’s something totally off the wall on the wall, such as this cuckoo crank flyer by “Johnny War – Master Artist” proclaiming that “Trump Is A Dream” and other cryptic messages. These is no sense in trying to make sense of this nonsense.

Angry Elephant Slap Sticker by Angelonce

Angelonce is an LA-based artist whose trademark character is an angry pink elephant named Charlie (yes, Charlie is pink. Do not listen to what your eyes are telling you. Charlie is pink, period. Trust me…. Charlie is pink). Angelonce gets around: I first discovered his work while snapping pics in San Francisco last year, and subsequently bumped into him while he was doing some mural work in Cambridge’s graffiti alley.
