I’ve always been interested in street culture and how it translates into art. As a former “graffiti artist” gone legit, it’s cool to see how the art form is constantly evolving and finding its ways into mainstream marketing. Whenever I drive to work and see some new graffiti on a building, I instantly go into critique mode. Usually the graffiti is absolutely horrible and it makes me mad because it makes the neighborhood look run down, but sometimes, it can be really cool. There is a difference between vandalism and graffiti art. Check out Smashing Magazines “Tribute to Graffiti: 50 Beautiful Graffiti Artworks” and let us know what you think.
