Street Art I

I have always regarded ‘street art’ with a great deal of respect, primarily because it does not seek a gallery audience, is embalmed with a ‘guerillaesque’ spirit, creates ‘beauty’ in ‘ugliness’, has ‘transformative’ and metamorphic goals, is skeptical and irreverent, and mostly, the creators seek anonymity. So unlike the art-market gallery space.

So much of creativity and labor, only to be white-washed out by ‘city cleaners’. Its a shame.

I was wondering why some cities embrace street art, such as London where artists from all over the world are commissioned to produce street murals, installations and paintings on walls and old buildings whilst other cities are completely against it. There is a difference between mindless graffiti (tags, pointless names, unpleasant artwork..etc) and actual street art. A good example would be the London Street Art Walking Tour where talented and respected artists decorated run down buildings and side streets with their work. Other cities I have noticed that also embrace street art are Brighton, Manchester and Birmingham. Does anyone think… Read more »

I heard the scene is massive in some parts of Europe. Does anyone have any hints or tips of where to go and also if there are any festivals of street art on at that time? Thanks guys. I`m particularly interested in the stencil stuff.

I’m organizing this street art related event and I need some recommendations for 3 movie projections.
I settled for Banksy’s Exit through the gift shop, Basquiat and Beautiful Losers, although I’m not sure about the last one.

Any other movies anyone here might recommend?

Thanks
