Graffiti and Urban Art New Way of Expression

Apr 26, 2008
Graffiti and urban are fast becoming one of the most talked about and controversial pieces of art since the picture of Mona Lisa.

The reason being is because of the new way to interpret images and successfully transfer them to canvas or paper. Urban artists in there own right are very talented and no longer is graffiti considered 100% as part of the underground.

The real greatness in urban art lies in peoples passion to design or draw not for a living but as a hobby. Now is the chance for urban artists all over the world to actually make a career out of there modern art form pushing the boundaries of the way that the current world perceives art.

What is art and urban art?
Some people would consider a lot of things art in this day and age, even the simplest stacking of cups has now taken an art form.

Urban art is where the truth really lies through fresh art born out of an artists mind and with no way to express themselves and there talent they turn to the streets.

Does urban art belong on the streets?
The simple answer is no and yes, urban and street art is just like any other form of art the only difference is that the people involved do not have the chance to show people there work so a place we are always likely to see graffiti is on the streets and walls. But not to say that it only belongs on the street graffiti is now a form of modern art and they have been used for social events to create a buzz and you can also find different forms of graffiti in galleries around the world.

Another major factor in why so many artists are turning to urban and graffiti is the simple fact that they will be able to identify themselves with a style and niche, they always bring something new to the table that people have not seen or experienced before unlike traditional art which is somewhat now classed as normal.

There is alot of courses and schools you can now also go, to study urban art and graffiti that's how well it is doing. A lot of graffiti artists are now international stars such as banksy who not only uses the traditional aerosol paint but also performs graffiti art with stickers, stencils and tiling, his graffiti and many other world renowned artists have made it clear that for a fact, urban art is the new way of expression.
