DALeast’s Unraveling Street Art

A Public Art Project Symbolically Reverses Detroit's 'White Flight' - Culture

One of his final works before his suicide in January reconnects with those roots using a replica of the classic ranch-style home he grew up in in the 1950s. The public art piece, called "Mobile Homestead," toured through Detroit and surrounding towns on a flatbed truck to demonstrate a symbolic reversal of the "white flight" from a struggling city to its suburbs. The project began in 2005 when Artangel, a British organization that produces site-specific art, asked Kelley to create its first project in the United States. Kelley responded with the idea of transporting a model of his childhood home from downtown Detroit to his real-life home in the suburbs, then back again.

Now the project is about to find its final resting place. Es Baluard Museo de Arte Moderno y Contemporáneo de Palma. 13) - dOCUMENTA (13) A R T E A N D O. CHILE ESTYLE.

A French Hotel Room Half Covered in Graffiti

The hotel has just five rooms that are annually reconceptualized by commissioned artists and designers, somewhat similar to NYC’s Carlton Arms. For this space entitled Panic Room (which might aptly describe your mental state after a few nights in this Willy Wonkaesque environment) Tilt divided the room perfectly down the middle, one half covered entirely in his trademark vibrant and bubbly graffiti and the other half left stark white.

See a sneak peek of all five concepts at Au Vieux Panier, including a room by Philippe Baudelocque who draws fantastic illustrations of animals using chalk. All in all, if I were checking in, Panic Room would be the clear choice. Photography above by the Big Addict. Corazón-street art. Banksy. Global Street Art. STREET ART. STREETS OF BEIGE.

Street art. Banksy. El grafiti, esa "violencia urbana"#.T-FUNv12IiA.twitter#.T-FUNv12IiA.twitter#.T-FUNv12IiA.twitter. Negar que una pintada en una puerta sin permiso del vecino, o en un bloque de pisos recién rehabilitado, puede ser un acto incívico - y, por lo tanto, objeto de infracción - parece tan absurdo como asociar el grafiti, sin matices, con la “violencia”.

El grafiti, esa "violencia urbana"#.T-FUNv12IiA.twitter#.T-FUNv12IiA.twitter#.T-FUNv12IiA.twitter

Por ello, las palabras del ministro del Interior de este lunes, en una conferencia en Tribuna Barcelona, han sorprendido a muchos. Jorge Fernández Díaz aseguró, literalmente, que la “violencia urbana adopta formas muy diversas. Un grafiti, por ejemplo, representa una forma elemental de violencia, ya que intenta imponer mensajes en el espacio público”. No hace falta ser un experto en arte contemporáneo para comprender que el grafiti ha sido (y es) fundamental para el lenguaje visual de finales del siglo XX y principios del XXI.

¿Quiere decir ello que todo el mundo puede arrojar pintura allá donde le plazca? Lo que es absolutamente cierto, y no se puede negar, es que el grafiti intenta ofrecer “un mensaje en el espacio público”. STREETSY. Hype and street art. Street art.
