Leading piece of Millie Kotseva's week's review of art on the streets comes from multi-talented Brooklyn -based artist Swoon, part of the Global Power Shift in Istanbul. The stunning wheatpaste adds a bit of ephemeral humanity to urban desolation, representing Swoon's active way of directing both community and global attention to important matters such as reliance/dependance on natural resources and climate changes.
