Street Art.

Is anybody interested in this?

I recently watched EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP and would like to read others opinion on it before I state my own.

Wiki says;

Quote:
Street art is any art developed in public spaces — that is, "in the streets" — though the term usually refers to unsanctioned art, as opposed to government sponsored initiatives. The term can include traditional graffiti artwork, stencil graffiti, sticker art, wheatpasting and street poster art, video projection, art intervention, guerrilla art, flash mobbing and street installations. Typically, the term street art or the more specific post-graffiti is used to distinguish contemporary public-space artwork from territorial graffiti, vandalism, and corporate art.

Artists have challenged art by situating it in non-art contexts. ‘Street’ artists do not aspire to change the definition of an artwork, but rather to question the existing environment with its own language. They attempt to have their work communicate with everyday people about socially relevant themes in ways that are informed by esthetic values without being imprisoned by them.[1] John Fekner defines street art as “all art on the street that’s not graffiti.”[2]

The motivations and objectives that drive street artists are as varied as the artists themselves. There is a strong current of activism and subversion in urban art. Street art can be a powerful platform for reaching the public, and frequent themes include adbusting, subvertising and other culture jamming, the abolishment of private property and reclaiming the streets. Other street artists simply see urban space as an untapped format for personal artwork, while others may appreciate the challenges and risks that are associated with installing illicit artwork in public places. However the universal theme in most, if not all street art, is that adapting visual artwork into a format which utilizes public space, allows artists who may otherwise feel disenfranchised, to reach a much broader audience than traditional artwork and galleries normally allow.
What is everybodys opinion on it? Do you like it, love it, or do you not care?

Re: Street Art.

Berlin Street Art i follow. Especially that of my favorite artist "Alias"

I favour Berlin as the history of graffiti there is prominent. A selection of artists capture politics, struggle and urban society. I'm facinated by the art and thinks its amazingly creative when done properly.

Re: Street Art.

Great thread.

Big fan of street art. I'll post pictures at some point from my world travels. Found some stunning work.

EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP is superb. Very clever way that he adapted the film to suit the story that was unfolding before his eyes. I'd recommend to a friend.

Re: Street Art.

I adore street art, particularly murals.

I love to immerse in New York's lively street art culture. There's actually a great blog dedicated to showcasing new art around the city. Definitely worth checking out if anyone is interested.
