Street Art is defined as Visual Art in Public places. According to this article there are seven different types: Murals, Graffiti, 3D Grafitti, Poster art, Sticker art, Sculptures and Sidewalk Chalk art.
This week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge is to find one or more examples of the different types of STREET ART.
Here’s a short definition of each type followed by examples from my photo archives.
Spray Painted Murals – large scale pictures drawn on walls and colored with spray paint.
Graffiti – one of the most popular and oldest form of street art, going back to ancient Egypt and Greece.
3D Wall Graffiti – with creative shadowing and paint effects, murals appear to be popping out of walls.
Poster Art – is art which is printed or drawn on papers and then attached or hung on walls.
Sticker Street Art – made with eye-catching stickers of different sizes and posted on trees, lampposts, walls and benches.
Sculptures – are structures displayed on streets, typically with cultural, political, religious or historical significance.
Sidewalk Chalk Art – images drawn on sidewalks, sometimes incorporating imaging technique with physical form. I don’t own any photo examples but this video shows an artist at work.
I look forward to seeing your STREET ART photos. Bonus points (which are worth absolutely nothing 😉 ) will be awarded to submissions with more than one STREET ART forms.
Remember to include a link to this post and a comment below, so that I and others can find your response.
This week’s challenge for STREET ART goes up to Thursday, after which Amanda at StPA will post a new Friendly Friday challenge.
