Graffiti

by on May.13, 2009, under Art

A while back, I read an article in the newspaper about Denver’s Magnet Mafia, a group of local artists that decorate magnets and stick them up around the metro area. I thought it was an awesome concept and probably would’ve bounded down to join them if I was more socially extroverted. 😛

Graffiti in general is quiet fascinating as it’s simultaneously viewed as both art and a defacement of public property. Though the term ‘graffiti’ usually brings to mind the modern depiction of fat letters on fences and boxcars, it does have roots in the ancient world …I suppose The Life of Brian’s Graffiti Lesson isn’t too out of place.

Check out MUTO a wall-painted animation by BLU. It’s graffiti come to life.

To see what’s going on in the world, take a look at Top 50 Graffiti Trends and Counter Culture Art in Q1 2009.

Feel inspired? Try some graffiti in the comfort of your own backyard by growing your own graffiti moss. Think of it as another form of living art.
