The Evolution of Street Art
Street Art is something that London holds dear, something to be proud of and something to support and encourage. Graffiti is a different form of art that allows professional artists and amateurs alike to express their creativity and showcase their skills outside of traditional artistic expectations.
However, the positive attitude we have towards street art is only a recent development and was once viewed entirely differently. Once regarded negatively and hand in hand with vandalism and crime, the view on graffiti and street art has since made a 180° turn. First emerged by rebellious creatives with spray paint, graffiti is now considered as one of the most dynamic, playful and colourful art forms. Why stop at a blank canvas when you can break the boundaries and create an evocative, eclectic and extraordinary mural?
Street art has taken the artistic world by storm and there are some incredible works of art around the globe showcasing how much of an asset it is in every creative culture. Take a look at these from Architectural Digest and see what you think: http://bit.ly/2glQaKG
