Street art, Daily inspiration
Street art is a very versatile art form
Produced around the globe by many fantastic artists, it turns the urban jungle into one big canvas.
Devised specifically for the street, street art has become hugely popular, with famous artists like Bansky exploding it on to the mainstream art world. Not to be confused with graffiti (as much as I do love good graffiti) street art uses many different mediums to create a finished piece, As you will see in today’s post many street art works are done with traditional media like spray paint, but a lot of street art is done with things like models, surrounding material, shadow, cracks in the wall, grass and pretty much anything that is to hand. One thing I love about street art is the artists find inspiration in anything and everything. As you see, a broken pavement or cracked wall is turned from an eyesore in to something quite stunning and often very clever and funny.
Street art is also used to express opinions on current issues like politics and religion. Big advertising agencies have caught on to the idea of street art now and are using it in gorilla advertising campaigns.
It can be as simple as a word on a wall to as complex as a full side of a building! But whatever it is, its eye catching and awesome!
