street art greens the urban jungle

When we think of street art we often think of dry concrete, spray paint cans and an urban wasteland, but that’s not what you’ll find here. These creations have a drastically more “green” theme, striving to bring a bit of unexpected nature to the so-called urban jungle and in doing so a bit more life to its often weary inhabitants. The creations of the guerrilla street art collective Mosstika, each piece of art brings some literal green to the world, installing pieces of art with living grass and moss around the city.
In creating such beautiful pieces the New York based Mosstika, and their founder Edina Tokodi, want to give street art a new twist, providing viewers with art that they can reach out, touch and appreciate in a tactile way. In providing something beautiful that can be not only viewed but also interacted with, they hope to provide something that reconnects city-dwellers with nature and something that can, in turn, soulfully touch those viewers back.
Tokodi’s work has been featured on the global stage, both publicly and privately at the Brick Lane Gallery in London, Lana Santorelli Gallery in New York, on the SEPTA public transit in Philadelphia, at the Billboard and public sculpture exhibition in Budapest, and a solo exhibition at The Gallery at (Le) Poisson Rouge.

Tom Foerstel : Founder & President

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.


He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.


An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.


One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
