Eco friendly street art is all the rage. There’s something about bringing green messages to urban areas that makes us rethink our connection to nature. Above, artist Jesse Graves spreads social and environmental messages with the help of mud and stencils.

Artist Edina Tokodi takes another approach, tagging buildings with creatures made of moss. Why is she inspired to create her works? In an interview with Wooster Collective, Tokodi said “if we don’t pay much more attention we may cause irreversible harm to our environment in the close future.”

Anna Garforth also uses moss to spread her message, creating natural 3D pieces. “I find working with natural media incredibly harmonious, things just work. The materials have their own voice and say. I also really enjoy working with recycled matter, turning it from waste into worth,” says Garforth.
