“I’m into art because it’s fun and because it helps people live their lives and not be so trapped by life,” says James Lai, a self-described street artist in San Francisco’s Mission District.
“I’m in it to make a difference, and to be able to do that, and in a way that is in the public’s interest, it helps me to be creative and create something that is meaningful to people.”
The other artists we interviewed all have their own unique takes on street artists and street art.
The street artist with the most creative interpretation of street art: A.J. DeBruynThe artist with a love of cartoons and a love for the idea of the human body as a platform for expression.

“It’s a really important piece of art for a lot of people, and it’s one of the things that I am trying to convey.
I’m trying to make people laugh, and that’s something I think about a lot.”
The artist whose work best represents his identity and personal style: Ariann BaranThe artist who prefers to work in the shadows, or behind a wall.
“Street art is an art form where you have a lot more freedom to do things outside of the norm,” he says.
“A lot of street artists like to do these things that they’re not normally allowed to do.”
The street artists who think street art is just for kids: Arie LaiThe street performer with a passion for social commentary and a strong desire to help others be creative.
“When I was young, my parents would say, ‘Well, why do you do this if you don’t have a family to feed?’
But now that I’m older, I think it’s important to take risks,” he explains.
“Because I’ve had a lot to deal with as a person, and a lot has changed in my life.
So I have to be prepared for that.”
The street art artist who doesn’t care what the public thinks: Jens HansenA.
J.’s work is influenced by the street artist’s interest in the human form.

“Street art has a huge impact on society, and the way we treat each other, and how we treat our environment is really important,” he states.
“The art forms that I have seen in the past that are really inspiring and inspiring to me, are street art.”
J.’s take on the idea that art is a means to an end.
“In a way, I’ve always been fascinated with street art,” he admits.
“When I started drawing in college, it was like an obsession with how people interact with each other.
I wanted to be involved in the movement, to help other people to get their feet wet in this art form.”
When he moved to San Francisco from Hong Kong, he began to look for an outlet for his creative impulses, which he says he has since developed into an appreciation of street culture.
A.A.’s “a lot of the art I’ve done, I have a big passion for, and when I started to feel the need to express myself, I just took it to the next level,” he continues.

“People have asked me about it since I was nine, and now I’m a street performer,” he recalls.
“As a kid, I used to draw a lot and then I started making it into art.
I used my drawing skills to create my own style, and then when I grew up, I started my own art school and started doing my own shows.
So, now I have more experience than anyone in the world, so I think I’m well on my way.”
The art form that inspired him: A street artist named Arie.
