Yes but is it art?

For number two of my occasional street art post, I’m in Warsaw. With apologies to the artist, this work reminds me of those colouring books for adults, does it you?

And is it art or graffiti?

Graffiti writing and street art are often confused with one another. Both are subversive art movements where work is displayed in public rather than a gallery setting. While graffiti artists place their work in public, . . .

Maybe this work isn’t finished, perhaps by now it’s in full colour.

 

 

Street Art Series

Graffiti writing and street art are often confused with one another. Both are subversive art movements where work is displayed in public rather than a gallery setting.

Street artists want everyone to view and be engaged by their work. They are trying to make a statement. Graffiti writing and street art are closely related contemporary art movements, however, they differ in terms of technique, function and intent

I’ve decided to do an occasional post of street art, so the quote is for anyone who is uncertain of the difference. Like many of you, I love street art and find some graffiti interesting.

Street artI’m kicking off with this on from the trendy Cour Julien and I’d love to know your feelings about street art.

Happy Thursday!

 

Pinktember 24th

It seems I amused Becky yesterday with my Pinktember name 🙂

I couldn’t resist another mask from Widsith and Deor today, she’s bit more cheerful than the last one I posted, perhaps she’s feeling a bit more in the pink. I wish I was, but today is my first day back to work and I’m dreading the number of emails I’ll have to deal with!

Becky has some Portuguese pink flowers today. Happy Monday everyone 🙂
