Description:

Graffiti. Is it art or is it vandalism? Does it offend or inspire? Talk to any street artist and they will tell you it’s not just spontaneous emotion that caused them to paint a wall, scrawl on a fence, or blast the side of a train with spray paint. Their designs have purpose, whether it’s to spread a message or to show the entire nation their work. It’s a positive means of expression that makes art accessible to the public for free. This doesn’t mean there isn’t symbolism behind colours or a whole history of the form like any other piece of art; it just means it can be seen by anyone and everyone, not only art collectors. Regardless, it’s still an illegal form of art, and for some, the allure of being caught is part of the draw.

Either way, street artists are making their mark around every corner.

Artists: Scott Sueme, Taka Sudo, Kris Kupskay, Baz Carolan, Soak, Pepe, Dork, Tim Barnard, Mark Ollinger, Stan Matwychuk, Grominator, Chad Coates, Mia Dungeon and Monty Montgomery from San Diego
