Graffiti Art

Not so long ago, graffiti art was synonymous with vandalism and defacing of properties. To an extent, it was wrong to see this style of artistic expression as just that, even back then, but many people didn’t realize this fact. However, more and more people are coming to see the vast potential of graffiti art today. It has become so popular that even the corporate art industry can’t afford to overlook it anymore.

All of that being said, graffiti art still hasn’t gotten even half the publicity and acknowledgment that it deserves. To that end, we will be covering every major and minor aspect of this form of art in detail here. So, be sure to read through to the end!

Definition of Graffiti Art - A Quick Glimpse Into the Essence of this Art Style

Sure, it’s certainly possible to appreciate all that this type of art brings to the table without having a definitive understanding of it. However, the argument can be made that this is incredibly challenging to do, which is why anyone who is seriously interested in this type of art needs to have a working knowledge of what it represents as well as the core essence of the art concept. With that type of information, there is no doubt that you will be able to value, treasure, and respect graffiti art even more deeply.

With that being said, here’s what you need to know about graffiti art.

This type of art has roots that can be easily traced to graffiti, a historic form of writing, painting, or drawing that is done in public view (usually on a wall, street floor, or other such surfaces) without legal permission or approval. However, even back then, the expressive abilities of this art form were well-pronounced. Graffiti could be used to do things as simple as just writing your name or as complex as sharing political opinions and sentiments.

Today, that form of art has been able to transition into a more compact form. You can now easily find graffiti on surfaces luike canvas, meaning that people don’t have to visit certain locations just to enjoy the beauty of this art. Graffiti art has been elevated from being seen as mere antisocial behaviour into some of the most sought-after art pieces in the world today.

From Then Till Now - A Brief History of Graffiti Art

Graffiti has a richer, fuller history than most people would initially suspect. For example, the word “graffiti” comes from the Italian word “graffio”. Graffio means “to scratch:. The very concept of graffiti can be traced as far back as the height of the Roman empire as we can easily see several inscriptions in Tikal, a Mayan city that’s located on Central America. More than that, you will find several of these works of art firmly engraved on everything from 16th-century English churches to much older Spanish rocks.

However, graffiti art, in the sense that we know and understand it now, began in the early 20th century. Among the first places to experience this unique art form were the United States of America and certain parts of Europe. During this type, graffiti art was intricately tied with gang organizations. These individuals tended to use the art less for aesthetics and more for certain specific purposes. These include but aren’t limited to things like marking and claiming territory, immortalizing fallen gang members, setting the stage for major gang clashes and confrontations, and several other such activities. As a result, it was pretty common to see this artwork in places such as subways, alleyways, walls, and even billboards. During this period, graffiti was commonly referred to as “tagging.” This, no doubt, is a huge part of why graffiti art was greatly frowned upon in the early days.

While several parts of the country were hit by this wave, there were places that felt its impact more keenly than others. At the top of the list of such places were Philadelphia and New York City, producing the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lady Pink, Keith Haring, Barry McGee, and other great graffiti artists in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Evolution of Graffiti Art in Modern Times - Where We Are Today

The contributions of legends like Banksy have effectively ensured that graffiti art will never remain relegated to the background. Despite its undoubtedly rebellious roots, graffiti art has become a core part of the mainstream art world today. Even places like Singapore that used to take a hard stance on this sort of art form have come to not only appreciate and embrace its genius but even advertise it loundly. Regions like Berlin, Germany, even have designated locations now where graffiti artists can display their genius without having to worry about anything.

All of these reasons and more are only a part of why graffiti canvas art has grown extensively in fame and popularity. Due to the fact that not everyone will be able to make the trip to see many of the destinations with these fine works of art, graffiti canvas art presents the perfect opportunity for you to enjoy all that this art style has to offer in the comfort of your space!

Key Characters of Graffiti Art You Must Know

As with all things, the whole is the sum of its parts with graffiti art. This is why it is very important that you have an understanding of the different characters that form the collective you see when it comes to this particular type of art. This is especially critical, considering that it is one of the most important elements that will help you make the most informed decision if and when it comes time to choose a piece for your space.

With that having been established, you should be aware that there are several key characters you have to keep in mind on this front. However, the most important of these are:

#1 - Bold and Vibrant Colors

This is the legacy that the likes of Keith Haring, Lady Pink, Cornbread, and Banksy left behind. Bold, vivid, and vibrant colors are perhaps one of the most iconic features of every major graffiti work of art you come across. One possible reason for this might be due to the fact that in the early days of the formation of this art style, the primary goal of the artist was to attract and arrest the attention of viewers at a glance. The sharp colors that the artwork typically have been and always will be one of the best and most efficient ways of doing this.

#2 - Use of Various Styles and Techniques

At the moment, it can be safely said that several things are not sure about this type of art. However, the one thing you can count on, without a doubt, when it comes to graffiti art is the fact that it will never die. Naturally, there are a host of reasons why this is the case. That being said, if we were to take a stab as to why this style of art will last till eternity, we will go with the fact that the versatile nature of graffiti ensures that you can readily and easily incorporate several techniques into it. This level of fluidity effectively guarantees that graffiti art will be able to effortlessly evolve with the times. As such, it will always be relevant.

#3 - Emphasis on Creativity and Self-Expression

It’s no doubt true that, in one way or the other, every art style leans heavily on creativity and self-expression to connect with viewers. However, one thing that is immediately apparent with graffiti art is that it takes this to a completely different level. From the very beginning, graffiti has always been a type of art that was innately fueled by intense emotion. Because of this, it is profoundly much easier for the feelings and sentiments of the artist to instill themselves in the artwork, ensuring that even casual viewers can get a healthy dose of it.

Types of Graffiti Art Forms to Know

There is a literal plethora of graffiti art forms to keep in mind, and we will be dedicating an entire blog post to exploring these very soon. However, the most important of these worth noting is:

Spray Paint Graffiti Art Form

  • Montana Black;
  • MTN 94;
  • Molotov Premium;
  • Flame Orange and;
  • Molotov Burner Chrome.

The Top Most Famous Graffiti Artists in the World

The Graffiti Art Hall of Fame is filled with many notable names, not least of which are:

#1 - Jean-Michel Basquiat

Born on December 22, 1960, Jean-Michel Basquiat was only active in the graffiti art landscape for a decade. However, he was able to give us many spectacular masterpieces in that time, including the Irony of Negro Policeman, Untitled (Skull), Hollywood Africans, and Defacement.

#2 - Barry McGee

This is undoubtedly one of the greatest icons of the graffiti art world, with his pieces featured in several prestigious galleries, even while he was alive. His genius gave the world paintings like The Buddy System, The Big Sad, The Other Side, and Fuzz Gathering.
