Edina Tokodi says:
“I think that our distance from nature is already a cliché. City dwellers often have no relationship with animals or greenery. As a public artist I feel a sense of duty to draw attention to deficiencies in our everyday life."Street art is constantly transformed and it's exciting to see it's progress. It's not just about marking your territory or reclaiming public space from advertising companies, triggering awareness and the lot; now it's stepped up to artist-audience interaction. Art is a type of one-way-communication, where you just take in and contemplate about the messages the artists are trying to convey. Now you can play with moss! How fun is that?!
