Look up. If you don’t, you won’t see it. What? Street art dubbed “Listen” or the “Listen Bird.”

What is it? As its nickname implies, the graffiti usually involves the word “Listen” and most of the time the image of a bird.

Who is it? Listen is anonymous and so far, has eluded the police. Rumours run rampent to his identity and some claim to know his name. Some think its more than one person because the styles are so different.

What does it all mean? Who knows, but fans interpret Listen’s message as a condemnation of our busy urban lifestyles and our disregard for nature. All I know is that I happened to look up one day and started seeing it everywhere and the messages made me laugh.

Listen Bird - Hip to be square
