I've been looking into the varieties of street art that exist out there, and I have to admit it has made me more impressed with artist than anything I've seen in a gallery lately.

There is a raw vibrance and naked human expression in the art made on walls in cities the world over.

and wheatpastes seem to allow more complex designs made in advance to be placed quickly and also have a move temporary nature.

I also like when somebody pushes the boundries too. I've heard of a type of street art sculpture being called lock-ons.

I'm a bit torn on the 'sanctioned' or not aspect. Most of it comes from the idea that, as somebody pointed out the other day to me, a building owner can be fined for their structure looking run down, and have to repeatedly pain over graffiti over and over again at cost to themselves and great frustration to all involved.

But I cannot help feel that most all of that goes away as soon as you stop fining people for their buildings not meeting the standards of a board of people somewhere else.

I loathe "tagging" it is an eyesore.

yeah, I'm no fan of just tagging. But I do feel the lines are not always easy to distinguish. Lettering and typography art things that can be profoundly artistic.

But more to the point, there are a great many people who don't see anything posted on a wall that wasn't requested as a mural as art.

My philosophy on art is that it is an expression of the artist, that requires the participation of the audience (like a tree falling in the woods, is painting that is never seen artistic?) and the art on the street it the determination to get that participation from both. Artists who can't or won't go through the processes of getting into galleries hiring themselves out for commissions, wanting to create things themselves that come unfiltered into being, able to connect with minds and eyes without a ticket, cover charge or being hung in private galleries. Out there for the whole world to see, and to catch somebody who neither of them knew it would happen for and for whom it means something.

But enough words:

the local city unofficial news facebook page had a debate blow up when somebody asked about maybe setting up an area of wall space for street art and graffiti.

A lot of "waste your own money for something like that, not my tax dollars." and a lot of spreading misinformation about it being territorial markings of gangs. Our city barely qualifies as a city in my opinion, we just don't have the right environment to support heavy gang activity, let alone enough of it going on to have gangs marking territory and clashing.

but I will also say we don't really have the population density that breeds actual art on walls. we see a lot of throwups and scribbles and that's about it.

I keep debating if I should get into street art and see if I might be able to encourage improvement.

There is an great instagram account called Street Art Global.  If you follow this genre of work, I highly recommend adding them to our follow list.

Page 3 of this collection shows something unique. This is definitely being used as a protest, rather than a pissing contest.
Also page 4.
