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.
