Street wall painting – art or vandalism?
Street wall painting or as everyone calls it, street art, represents a form of artwork that is made in a community on streets or buildings or any other publicly surfaces.
Many times street art comes as a form of guerrilla art, which suggests a statement about the society that the artist lives in. back in history, street art started as graffiti and it was considered being vandalism.
In reality, street art always has a message behing the painting. It can be simply beauty or it could suggest the reality that people live nowadays. This form of “vandalism” actually shows some issues, either social or political.
On my way on imap I couldn’t just walk away. I had to stop to admire and to try to understand the hidden message. It could be similar to art in general. From my point of view, that’s actually the beauty of art. The creator has a story to tell, but in reality it’s not just one story. There are so many stories. It simply depends how each one sees it through his own mind.
Street art is not anymore about vandalism. Is another way of expressing ourselves and it becomes each day more and more popular.
