Graffiti is the next big thing in the art category..it’s not necessary that everyone should like it or need to as it’s everyone’s personal choice..
Graffiti in my opinion is nothing but expressing your feeling through a spray paint can.. If you really see what they draw is just remarkable and shows the amount of talent that have in them..
Here’s a pic of what I am talking. About. The place is called 5Pointz which is in Long Island City, Ny and is a sight to see.. There are buildings and building filled with graffiti and it wi blow your mind.
I’m sure there are questions in ur head regarding graffiti being illegal and partly destructive too.. But how any know that if you take permission from the owner or the building it’s not illegal and you as a graffiti artist have all the rights to create art.
Here’s a video of 5Pointz and the paintings.
Graffiti has been there since a long time and there still are old timers who have been painting such as (Banksy, PIxnit,etc )
Here’s a link to their work
Here are a few other artists who i personally know and you should definitly take a look st their work.
Coming back to 5Pointz, it’s sad that G&M Realty have proposed to demolish the famous graffiti building so that they can build a residential building. its sad as they don’t understand that this is a piece of art and for once not thinking about money will not make them poor.

I’m sure many of us have a Tv show we can all call our favorites. Knowing that our class is very mixed in terms of geographical location, the favorites may vary drastically and some of us may not even know of the shows you call your favorite. I don’t watch all that much Tv anymore unless it’s something on Netflix like a documentary (I’m also a sucker for watching Nat Geo and Discovery). However, there is one show in particular that I try to catch as it continues to air new episodes. That show would be what I would without a doubt, call my favorite. It is…The Simpsons.
The Simpsons are currently airing their 25th season and continue to break records. My love affair with the show probably started in the early 90′s. I’ve managed to see every single episode (532 to date). For me, I watched the show when people considered it edgy and controversial. It’s hard to believe that by where they are now, but you have to remember that shows like South Park and Family Guy didn’t exist yet.
The show has evolved through-out the years and has grown a huge cast. I’ve seen all of the episodes and I couldn’t tell you the names of all of the characters that live in Springfield (which is really in Oregon by the way).
The show features many jokes including many jabs at the Fox network, which are particularly entertaining due to Fox holding the rights of the show. In addition, every episode of The Simpsons, has what is known as a “couch gag”. If you’re unaware, the show starts with the characters running in to sit on the couch. The way this happens changes in almost every episode…people like Banksy have even designed intros for the show.
I can talk about the show all day, but I won’t bore you with that. I’ll give you the basics.
My favorite characters are: Bart & Homer
My Favorite episode is: Homer at the Bat
My favorite couch gag is:
Finally, here is a video that a user on YouTube compiled, it shows quite an amount of great moments from The Simpsons. Check it out! If you have any questions or want to discuss, let me know!
Yesterday Banksy held a sale of his creations in Central Park without announcing . The surprise was unveiled today on his official website ”Better Out Than in”, where you can admire his creations.
“Yesterday I set up a stall in the park selling 100% original authentic signed Banksy canvases .
For $ 60 each. “
Before adding : ” Please note: . This was a one off The stall Will not be there again today . “
Banksy is , as he says himself ” an artist residencey on the street of New York.” It is a street artist .
Since the 1st October ( creating his Facebook Fanpage ), the artist graffs the streets of New York, before his works themselves, are recovered by those of other graffiti artists , as is the law of the street .
By selling his paintings in anonymity, affordable (they are estimated at thousands of dollars each) it is the message that art is to move everyone. Art by all, for all .
