Street Art

The world is covered with the smear of the most ugly form of art: Graffity, which now more fashionable is called Street Art.
"Street art is any art developed in public spaces that is, "in the streets" though the term usually refers to unsanctioned art, as opposed to government sponsored initiatives. The term can include traditional graffiti artwork, stencil graffiti, sticker art, wheatpasting and street poster art, video projection, art intervention, guerrilla art, flash mobbing and street installations. Typically, the term street art or the more specific post-graffiti is used to distinguish contemporary public-space artwork from territorial graffiti, vandalism, and corporate art." (Wikipedia)
As with all form of art it looks sometimes awful, but in all this ugliness one can find some beauty. I try to show that in these pictures. After revisiting Hosier Lane again I noticed that a lot of the graffiti had disappeared and were mostly painted over with new ones. One may conclude that the art of graffiti renews it self all the time.
