The Animals are Watching You Commute
There’s a bear in West Seattle. A polar bear.
In Georgetown, a wolf can be found on the second story of an abandoned warehouse.
Under the viaduct, you can find a wolf. There’s one on Capital Hill, too.
They’re all paste-ups, detailed “stickers” of animals, created and applied by street artist No Touching Ground. Different from your typical graffiti tag, there’s no signature, no hard to read text. It’s just a very well done image of an animal in two colors and they can be found all over Seattle.
In the video below, the artist says his work serves as a reminder of what might be here if we weren’t; that the animals are a nice reminder of the natural world. I like that sentiment and hope the West Seattle bridge polar bear is there forever.
