Street Art Tuesday

Tuesdays are the days I like to highlight street art in America. This is a classic example of the tied-chicken genre. Tied-chicken has been called the haiku of street art. Yes there are strict rules of composition and materials, but nobody's really sure what they are and nobody much minds until the chicken starts to go bad.
