Hey ya’ll. I’ve just gotten started cutting stencils and playing around with shading and blending colors. I’m posting this just to reach out to those of you who are interested in art in general to collect your thoughts on Graffiti.
Post spawned because i got into an argument about something on another forum where some dude from out of the blue posted a shitty advertisement and was generally a douche. i called him out on it and he was all about how stencils and shit aren’t “real” graffiti. Most of what he was saying was idiotic posturing and ego manipulation, but i started thinking what people think about street art.
Do you appreciate it? Enjoy it? Does it put a smile on your fave to think that someone thought about what they’d spray then did it where everyone could enjoy it? (at least thats why i do it) Do you hate it? Think its a nuisance that disrupts the natural beauty of a city or nature spot?
Share aaaalllll thoughts.
I would love to see more street art around the city of Boston. It is a completely different art form that people from the city, would have a greater appreciation for. Thinking about cities and buildings as a canvas is just a great, new perspective.
