10 Facts you Don’t know about Graffiti!

1. Proofs of Graffiti were found in the Roman arhitecture.

2. Graffiti as it’s known today began in the late 1960s in Philadelphia.

It was primarily used to make political statements and mark street gang territory.

3. The Philadelphia Anti-Graffiti Network was founded in 1984 to fight the spread of graffiti.

The Philadelphia Anti-Graffiti Network is dedicated to the eradication of graffiti vandalism through coordinated efforts of city agencies, business organizations and community groups. The Mural Arts Program has established a partnership with communities throughout Philadelphia to create more than 2,800 murals and provides artistic opportunities for youth.

4. The Style Wars began in the 1970s, which introduced the concept of bombing.

Graffiti artists started to create bigger and bigger pieces in an attempt to achieve fame. They would often “bomb,” or “hit,” one area, which meant painting as much as they can in an area. For the sake of time, they often threw up tags instead of complex pieces.

5. While most laws surrounding graffiti are local, there is a federal law prohibiting railroad vandalism.

The law is a strategy to prevent trespassing on railroad property and vandalism affecting railroad safety.  Their main concern in creating this law was safety.

6. Why graffiti artists tag their work.

Most graffiti artists prefer to be called ‘writers’ and each have their own unique ‘tag’. Artists who are into graffiti have a desire for public recognition and want to see their work around town, this is why each artists tag is different, a unique signature.

7. Graffiti is one of the four elements of hip hop.

The other three are DJing, emceeing and break dancing. Some have added on a fifth, which is Knowledge, Culture and Overstanding. There are lesser elements of hip hop including Fashion, Promoting, Beatboxing, Funkstyles, Flyer-Making, and many others. However, these are often debated as to whether they are hip hop ELEMENTS, or simply a part of hip hop culture.

8. Subway graffiti died out for the most part in the late 1980s due to heightened security.

Most of thr train with a significant amount of graffiti on it were taken off the rails but it didn’t die out completely, however, and some artists took to freight trains. Some of them can still be found in Bucharest – Romania.

9. A new level of tagging.

The tagging of names became highly competitive, with those who tagged more becoming better known in the graffiti community. Some believed that this defied the true nature of graffiti, but at this point in the 1980s, everyone wanted to be famous.

10. One of the first known graffiti artists was called Cornbread.

The story starts with the young Cornbread developing a crush on a girl named Cynthia Custuss, so he wrote Cornbread Loves Cynthia all over the local area in order to win her affections. Finding he enjoyed this, he continued to tag Philadelphia with his name, including the jet plane that belonged to the Jackson 5 and on an elephant in the local zoo which resulted in an arrest!

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Street Art

1 GRAFFITI AND STREET ART ARE VERY DIFFERENT

They are often confused with one another, both are subversive art movements where work is displayed in public rather than a gallery setting.

While graffiti artists place their work in public, generally speaking they are not interested in the public understanding their work, they just want to « speak » to other graffiti artists. Street artists want everyone to view and be engaged by their work. They are trying to make a statement. Graffiti writing and street art are closely related contemporary art movements, however, they differ in terms of technique, function and intent.

2. MASTERING CAN CONTROL IS HARD

“Can control is essentially being able to use the can properly and being able to manipulate what the can does,” explains Moberg. “For example, when you have something called a flare it’s when it’s really wide and fuzzy at the top of a letter and as you get to the bottom it will be really clean and skinnier. That can control process is not just moving your arm, it’s moving your wrist, rotating your wrist and your arm at the same time. In the ’90s, we didn’t have the paint we have now. We were using hardware store paint which is really runny and it takes a lot of commitment to learn how to use.”

3.THERE ARE POLITICS IN STREET ART

Unlike painting on your private canvas, street art is public and subject to being covered by a competing artist, so you never really know how long a piece is going to remain visible.

“There are no rules. It’s not a club you have to be in. Part of writing on the street is you could go back there tomorrow and it’s covered up because somebody dissed you or you don’t know where you are and you’ve written on somebody’s wall that they’ve already called. There’s politics and drama and silly things.” says Kristin Adamczyk

4 Street Artists Use Different Modes of Painting While Graffiti Artists Use Aerosol

Aerosol is one of the major factors that separates graffiti writers from other artists.

Graffiti is all about the freehand use of aerosol which is the art’s defining factor and it takes years to perfect

Even if street artists  use aerosol, they also employ everything from acrylic and oil paint to projectors, wood or metal, and multimodal materials.

5. WHEAT PASTES ARE FOR STREET ARTISTS

In street art, a wheat paste refers to a simple adhesive made out of flour, water, and glue to stick and seal a piece to a wall or building.

“A wheat paste is a really good example of how graffiti is different from street art,” says Adamczyk. “Street art really means you’re bringing art onto the public street. That can mean you’re using a paint brush and applying acrylic paint or a wheat paste, which I like to use. I’ll print out some of my photos or I’ll do a sketch with Sharpies or permanent markers and then it’s on a piece of paper. All you do is apply the paste to it and post it up on the wall.”

But, as with most street art, it has a temporary life span—six months for a wheat paste that has been well-sealed with a top coat or just three weeks to a month for one that has not.

6. MORE RECENTLY CITIES ARE USING STREET ART TO BRING FRESH AIR INTO THE AREA

 

Different cities are working with street artists to bring a newfound energy to a place that is in desperate need of revitalization.

7. STREET ARTISTS LEARN TO LET GO

How can you let go something like Art?! The hardest part it to accept that other people won’t consider it as good as you think, or the fact that it can be covered up, replaced etc.

 

8. IN A CREW VS. ALONE

If we speak about a crew we directly think about Graffiti Artist – but then again, there are graffiti writers who don’t identify with a crew at all

Abhorrent from graffiti writers, the street artists don’t tend to work their way up the hierarchy of a crew; they often come straight from the studio into the street-art scene.

9. Graffiti Is Harder to Read

You will see there are many different Graffiti styles but Wildstyle is the most difficult graffiti signature to read because you it kind of  has its own language.

10. DAY LIGHT VS NIGH LIGHT

If you see someone painting a wall  during the day they are probably creating Street compared to Graffiti writers which almost always paint in the middle of the night or early morning to make sure they are not getting caught.
