You must be thinking, what’s this all about? What’s Street Art? How can street art make any change?
First of all, what’s street art?
Street art is an original type of art that can only be seen in the streets. Some people recognize this artwork as a real art but for some, this is just a random act of vandalism. If street art is not a familiar term, you may have heard of other terms like graffiti artwork, stencil graffiti, sticker art, wheat pasting and street poster art. They’re all members of the same family!
But, how can it change the world?
It can’t! Simply because Art is not meant to change the world. But as French street artist JR says;
“when you see people interacting, when you see an impact on their lives, then I guess in a smaller way, this is changing the world.”
That’s what Street Art is all about. It is all about creating controversy, emotions, invading people’s mind, surprising them, just to make them realise that we don’t live in a perfect world. But we can make it better.
