Street Art - Graffiti Art
This kind of art, which is consider like a vandalism, was created in New York, in dark ghettos on the beginning of the year 1980. It was kind of art, which was drawing – spraying on wall of houses, like a decoration. From New York, graffiti goes to Germany – to Berlin. Here were made first basic styles of words. A writers – artists who make graffiti, made these styles. But after some years graffiti became a problem. Graffiti wasn’t now art it was only vandalism, which are respecter streets in cities. Graffiti were spraying on the illegal places like trains or state buildings, because in the cities were not legal places, were can be graffiti spraying. And now, illegal places are making for rag or adrenaline and fun. It’s very dangerous, that’s why are illegals making. Some people say that graffiti – legalls or illegals are vandalism, but I think that graffiti is art, only without paintbrush. Pieces are real art. They are often spraying on the legall places, because they are very complicate and big too. There is not time to make some pieces to illegal places. Pieces are divide to production – some pieces which are taps on the other pieces, they are often doing on the jam – that’s street party, all writers and crews (crew is band of writes which is doing graffiti, it can be more crews in one town) are meet and doing graffiti. And the second
divide is one piece, which do one writer. When is piece very good draw, it look very nice and becomingly. Each piece of graffiti is tagged, tag is signature of writer, and each writer or crew has got his own tag. If writer want to do some more complicate piece, character or bomb, he must do
sketch of it. It is design of piece on the paper. When writer go to draw piece he took the sketch. Sometimes is sketch draw better than piece, but is often very hard to draw nice and original sketch with own style. Bombs are basic form of graffiti, if want some new crew to be most popular in other good crews, that crew or writer must do Bombs. Bomb is often doing only with two basic colors – silver outlines and black shadows. Bombs are good for illegals – trains, underground or administrative buildings and other places, which are easy to see, because they are easy, elementary and they are very quickly spraying. Bombs are very popular for writers, but for other people bombs are very big problem. Trains are illegal places to draw graffiti, but they are very sought – after for writers. They are doing trains for rag, and adrenaline.
Trains are often doing in the night, so it is very dangerous for beardless writers. If some writer do train, he is very good and when is the draw in the train good it is plus for writer or crew. Trains are divides on the two parts. First part is called wholecars; wholecars are doing on the all place of train. The second part is called panel. Panel is graffiti too, but only under train windows. Some people say yes, because they see only coverage walls and they don’t see any art in graffiti. I think, that it’s better draw some on the walls, than break some windows or lamps on the streets. Graffiti is form of art, but the artists don’t draw their artworks on the paper but they do it on the big walls where can their artwork show to other people. Writers are dividing to two groups – toys and correct writers. Toys are beginners, which do only horrible teggs or bad bombs in streets, toys are doing very bad name for correct writers. Correct or professional writers are doing a lot of pieces under bridges – where is it legal.
