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. 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. Street artists sometimes present socially relevant content infused with esthetic value, to attract attention to a cause or as a form of "art provocation". 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 Street art is a topical issue.
Arta Lui SantaniChiar daca nu sunt asa de inaintat in varsta, pot sa sustin cu mana pe inima ca jucariile, “de pe vremea mea”, nu aratau asa. Mare pacat. Daca aveti nevoie de ceva care sa va stimuleze imaginatia juniorului chiar va recomand lucrarile lui Santani. Artistul are doar 21 de ani (practic e inca copil) iar “papusile” (daca se pot numi asa) create de el sunt din alta lume. Personajele care prind “viata” in mainile rusului sunt de-a dreptul demonice si dragute in acelasi timp. Chiar sunt curios pe care dintre ele ati vrea sa o aveti … in cazul meu e detasat ultima si de preferinta sa fie si vie.
RED BULL STREET ART VIEWGraffitiGraffiti in Toronto Graffiti is writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface, often in a public place. Graffiti ranges from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and it has existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire. In modern times, paint (particularly spray paint) and marker pens have become the most commonly used graffiti materials. In most countries, marking or painting property without the property owner's consent is considered defacement and vandalism, which is a punishable crime. Graffiti may also express underlying social and political messages and a whole genre of artistic expression is based upon spray paint graffiti styles. Controversies that surround graffiti continue to create disagreement amongst city officials, law enforcement, and writers who wish to display and appreciate work in public locations.
