A ~ Z of Marvelousness: G is for Graffiti



Graffiti (or is it Street Art?)

  • What's the difference between Graffiti and Street Art ? this
  • This marvelous yellow wall might be the perfect cross between the two...

  1. That settles it. There is a brick wall in the park behind my home covered in 'graffiti'. Not pretty at all.

  3. If it is commissioned, then great. If if is just "tagging" to be disrespectful to property owners, then no, it is not OK.

  4. We have a whole set of allies here with street art which I did a photo shoot on a few years ago. Great stuff. But sometimes it really is hard to tell the diff

  5. Thanks for the link that explains the difference between graffiti and street art. I don't know that I've really taken the time to differentiate between the two. Personally, I'm not one who would ever paint something on something that belonged to someone else, so I confess I haven't really had very much appreciation for either thing, especially when I see it float by me on a traincar. However, I did think this was a very interesting post and I am greatly enjoying sampling all the cool blogs out there on the #AtoZChallenge.

  8. An interesting thought. To me the difference is messing with someone else's property, to me this looks like graffiti, not art. I love the murals you sometimes see, perks things up...tagging, looking like gang related isn't art, IMHO.

  9. Street art is cool, tagging is not. But even though street art is cool, it's uncool to paint it on someone else's property without their permission. The owner may not share your vision of coolness.

    My opinion.

  11. We were held up at a train crossing today and watching all the cars go by, they are covered with graffiti and yet, to us, it is very attractive, well the ones that are well done that is.

  12. In the Uk we have some walls where murals have been painted and they are real street art. There has recently been a campaign to get some of it saved as art of the Twentieth Century. Then there are the adverts that used to be painted on walls - I used these for my g entry as "ghost signs" as many are fading away. We also have plenty of graffiti and however clever some of it may be it is not a pretty sight on the whole. Enjoying your posts and look forward to more.

  13. I think it's art when it's attractive or has some sort of poetic or passionate meaning (not I <3 Ben)
