street Art Update

Wednesday 18 September 2013 - Filed under Uncategorized

Thanks for the great street art submissions and the excellent feedback you gave us in our previous collaboration blog post. The murals and art we’ve seen (sculptures, even) have been outstanding! I just wanted to give a status update on this project and let you know it’s not forgotten at all.

You mentioned all kinds of cool things: maps, databases, galleries, cool stories. We’re going to noodle on the ideas you mentioned and come up with something awesome from here. The production process may take a while to progress, so please know that we are steadily moving forward. Don’t hesitate to continue to send any eyecatching stories you see our way. We potentially could do multiple things with the material.

I also want to challenge you to start expanding beyond painted graffiti and find things that are a bit different or taking place in other mediums. We have a lot of photos of tags and murals now, and I’m curious about what else is going on out there. We’ve seen some examples with the chewing gum walls noted by mainstreet57, Kiwiphopa and spooly. micosantos sent a video about urban knitting and we have another set of images from grrlandog of urban knitters who took over a public toilet in Australia. Let’s see if we can get broad geographic coverage both domestically and globally. Basically, the more and more diverse, the merrier.

The $64 million question is: What story are we trying to tell here?

Also, please continue to share your ideas here in the comments area. We want to know what other thoughts are out there. Thanks again for your participation!

The motivations and objectives that drive street artists are as varied as the artists themselves without using any fast cash. There is a strong current of activism and subversion in urban art. Street art can be a powerful platform for reaching the public, and frequent themes include adbusting, subvertising and other culture jamming, the abolishment of private property and reclaiming the streets. Other street artists simply see urban space as an untapped format for personal artwork, while others may appreciate the challenges and risks that are associated with installing illicit artwork in public places. However the universal theme in most, if not all street art, is that adapting visual artwork into a format which utilizes public space, allows artists who may otherwise feel disenfranchised, to reach a much broader audience than traditional artwork and galleries normally allow.

I agree with everything KamdenK wrote. But I do also want to add on the supposed 64 million dollar question, however. I agree with the things stated about why people do street, or guerrilla art, but I don’t think that is the question that needs to be answered. More importantly, I feel, is what the artists are trying to say, the message being broadcast. What are the reasons that they put something up in urban areas and what are they trying to tell the potential millions of people who traverse across their art day to day. KamdenK mentioned subverting and adbusting, but subverting what and to what end?

The problem with a lot of the submissions of pure graffiti (not all) is that it can be attributed to ‘kids being kids’ or ‘vandalism.’ To make it art, it has to take you from one way of thinking to another, open a door, or make you feel something (other than disgust that someone littered their supposed art in your city.) That is where I feel this article needs to go.
