If you live in a metropolitan city, you’ve surely seen the black and white sticker “BNE” or “BNE was here” (or a defaced version) as they are everywhere. Aside from the stickers, little has been known about the artist. BNE has traded in his spray paint can to start a non-profit organization and website called BNEwater.org. The site is a global movement dedicated to bringing clean, safe water, and sanitation to people living in extreme poverty. The site recently launched and there are future plans to sell merchandise with the proceeds going to help The Artists 4 Water project. It is envisioned that the project will raise millions of dollars to fight the world water crisis and save millions of lives. Each contributing artist’s talent and influence will also raise awareness and help bring worldwide attention to the cause. Click here to get involved.
