art is everywhere…

why I love urban art

Urban art is to art what Julia Child is to cooking. . . somebody in a funny accent telling you that you don’t need to be a professional to say who you are and what you’re about in a visual form.  Sure in alot of cases graffiti is illegal. . . and thats why it gets painted over 😦 I’m not promoting the defacement of public property . . . What I am promoting is the the absorption of these images for inspirational purposes.  These paintings and words say so much without going to college, they convey so much without being “trained.” They’re free, expressive, and more current than CNN dreaming it’s BBC. The next time you’re in a downtown area look around, and feel the art thats everywhere speak to you. It screams and whispers at the same time.

    Wow. That is a beautifully written piece. My post doesn’t compare. Haha. But, it’s so true. Art is art, not a reason to be labelled as a criminal. Although, it is kind of poetic. LOL.
