Maybe this should be titled graffiti = art because it does. Graffiti equals art. Every single time.
I'm always going to be a graffiti enthusiast.
Some may look down at the genre as a lower form of art, like it's just something kids do in the hood. Some may not consider it an art form at all.
I know better.
My husband may not be painting trains anymore (not that I know of, and I'd like to keep it that way) but his technique, his style, his flow--they will always have roots in graffiti. I think this is why I love it so much. In a way, it's an extension of my love for him.
It makes me happy to see art like this, made more accessible to the masses. How can something so vibrant and alive not be considered art?
Of course it is. Oh, and this warehouse? Can I live in it?
Peep this video by Ironlak. It's amazing.
