A tribute to urban art


Journal prompt for this week…think about graffiti as art.
I didn't get any huge insight about this but learned a lot of interesting facts about the printing and about how amazing some of it is!  Greg and I see a lot of it on trains.  Lots of it I can't read but I can tell it's some code or message (gangs?).  Who else who stand in deserted train yards all night with spray paint?  

But some of it is actually commissioned work (on walls of buildings as murals) and some is in museums.  Rather fascinating modern urban art.  

Materials: collage, stencil, wc and acrylic and ink.  YES glue, and downloaded train image.  

It's gorgeous…I am going outside now!!!
