- My thoughts about this woman who is going around the US putting permanent graffiti in government owned land (Federal). If you are going to break a law and vandalise government property you should make sure that your skills are up for the challenge. What does this art have to do with the space? It is not complimenting the view and it can’t compete. Mother nature wins and the artist, well she just used up her fifteen seconds of fame.
- Atlanta what are you doing? The graffiti artists in Atlanta decided to paint over their graffiti rather than let people have a party in a tunnel whey they share their art in support of an artists foundation. Sometimes artists don’t make sense. These graffiti artists painted a wall that did not belong to them and then got upset when people want to appreciate the art they made and make some money for a foundation. Yes, the tunnel will be closed off to non-paying party people for a few hours but those people may come back and take a look at the art on the other 364 days of the year. As a graffiti artist you lose ownership once it goes on the wall and it is the publics right to use the graffiti, alter it or even appreciate it with a party to help the art community.
- At Munich Artists, we like great art and encourage all artists to create and share their creations. In the US, museums are realising this trend for combining professional and amateur artists and curators. Currently US museums are creating exhibitions which showcase the talents of their residents and are finding this helps their bottom line. Here is an article from the WSJ on this topic for you to read and discuss.
