video found via: http://poppytalk.blogspot.com/2011/06/inspiration-nuria-mora.htmlNuria Mora's artwork on the cover of the January 2011 ARTnews brightened my winter. This was the first I had heard about this Madrid-based artist so I was pleased to see the above video on the Poppytalk blog. Nuria Mora's street art humanizes and beautifies city streets. It's ironic that in many cities "uncommissioned" street art is illegal and yet more compelling than the mind-numbing billboards that proliferate in those same places.
If you are a sketchbook devotee, check out Nuria Mora's website, specifically her black book in the Drawings section.
