Art Far-Flung: Redefining street art | Wayfaring Tech Nomad

The story of how I came to appreciate the art of Over Under, Labrona, Gaia, Tom GreyEyes, and Jetsonorama began 10 months ago. I was out at the Elizalde Concrete Company Ruins, traipsing around and taking photos. Something in me, boredom perhaps, drew me many miles off the road. I got out to stretch my legs and found perhaps one of the better far-flung art hotspots I've ever seen. It doesn't look like much at first:

Stumbling upon such an art space feels very much like finding something that you know is special but don't really know why. So, I asked a friend of mine who is more schooled in the finer points of street art, and he ID'd the artists as Labrona and Over Under (aka OU33). I forgot all about it until two days later when this popped up outside of super remote Goldfield, Nev.:

It wasn't long until my friend tagged Over Under, whom I now know as artist Erik Burke of Reno, Nev., on Instagram, and he told me the story of putting this up in his underwear because it was so hot that day. The Internet is an amazing place, isn't it?
