Stencil STREETSY 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”. 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”.

LA community group calls for thieves to return work done by Banksy during Oscars By Amy Oliver Updated: 02:48 GMT, 23 March 2011 An original painting by elusive street artist Banksy is a serious investment. So serious some are using drastic - and even illegal - measures to obtain one. A number of new works attributed to the artist, which sprang up during the run up to the Oscars in Los Angeles last month, have since been defaced or stolen. Now one LA community group is calling for them to be returned. Now you see it... 'Just before the Academy Awards a number of unique pieces of 'graffiti' appeared in Los Angeles, San Diego and neighbouring communities,' group All Voices wrote in an open letter. 'A majority of this art was attributed to world-famous, anonymous British graffiti artist, political activist, film director and painter Banksy. 'Unfortunately, much of this art was immediately removed and in most cases stolen from the private property where it was originally painted. Where's it gone? They also called for the artist, famous for eluding the press, to get in touch.

A French Hotel Room Half Covered in Graffiti Internationally recognized graffiti artist Tilt has just completed this eye-popping interior design work for the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille, France. 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.

Bodies in Urban Spaces | Don't Panic Magazine People of urban spaces, keep a lookout for mysterious figures in brightly coloured hoodies occupying corners you never knew your city had. We spoke to art director Willi Dorner who has been arranging faceless people in public places for seven years now. What is Bodies in Urban Spaces? BIUS started as a photo-project in July 2004. I got a residency in a residential building in Vienna for six weeks and I worked there on several ideas in this newly built apartment. They offered me a card blanche. Who gets involved? People on the street, passers by, pedestrians and the performers. How do you decide where to go? I always go there ahead of time before I start working on the installations. How do people react when they see you? Well, this is quite a wide range of reactions, from 'wow' and surprise, laughing, smiling to the other end of the spectrum provoking anger, aggression. What do you want people to take away from the experience of seeing Bodies in Urban Spaces? What's up next?
