Street art

John Fekner: Broken Promises/Falsas Promesas, South Bronx, 1980. The terms "urban art", "guerrilla art", "post-graffiti" and "neo-graffiti" are also sometimes used when referring to artwork created in these contexts.[1] Traditional spray-painted graffiti artwork itself is often included in this category, excluding territorial graffiti or pure vandalism. Artists who choose the streets as their gallery are often doing so from a preference to communicate directly with the public at large, free from perceived confines of the formal art world.[2] Street artists sometimes present socially relevant content infused with esthetic value, to attract attention to a cause or as a form of "art provocation".[3] Street artists often travel between countries to spread their designs. Some artists have gained cult-followings, media and art world attention, and have gone on to work commercially in the styles which made their work known on the streets. Background[edit] Street art is a topical issue.

Streetsy: Recent Activity Arte urbano Plantilla realizada por Banksy, uno de los más emblemáticos artistas urbanos. El término arte urbano o arte callejero, traducción de la expresión street art, hace referencia a todo el arte de la calle, frecuentemente ilegal. El arte urbano engloba tanto al graffiti como a diversas otras formas de expresión artística callejera. Desde mediados del los años 90 el término street art o, de forma más específica, Post-Graffiti se utiliza para describir el trabajo de un conjunto heterogéneo de artistas que han desarrollado un modo de expresión artística en las calles mediante el uso de diversas técnicas (plantillas, posters, pegatinas, murales....), que se alejan del famoso grafiti pero no siempre tiene que ser en paredes pues ahora en la actualidad es posible, incluso, dibujar en forma experta 3D. Uno es el uso de plantillas (stencil), a menudo con un mensaje político, cobra especial relevancia en París en la segunda mitad de los años 60.

Little People - a tiny street art project Brooklyn Street Art Home Posted on April 7, 2014 “After photographing in the mosh pits for awhile I began to get familiar with patterns in the music. Eventually it got to the point where I could sense the moment coming when things would really cut loose and go berserk,” says painter Dan Witz about his process and method for catching the moment when the roiling mass of hardcore music fans hit the perfect state of frenzy. “NY Hardcore Paintings”, opening this past Saturday night and on view currently at The Jonathan Levine gallery in Chelsea, presents Witz with his new body of convulsing bodies and to say they are a revelation is only part of the story. Dan Witz “NY Hardcore” Jonathan LeVine Gallery (Photo © Jaime Rojo) With this many pieces displayed at once you begin to see mosh pits more as a cultural phenomenon, sociological study, and expression of the cognitive polarity produced when marginalized subculture creates communal gatherings.
