I Support Street Art: Graffiti is more than art

This bio of A1one is the perfect example of how street art is not just graffiti.  It is, in fact, even more than just art.  It is an expression of the artist’s viewpoint and comments on the world they, and we, live in.

A1one is the most prolific Graffiti writer working and creating street art and graffiti in Iran and inspiring a whole generation of new visual artists in the region.. First Experiences on with Spray Can 1995, A1one started Painting on Tehran Walls in 2003 in his neighborhood in Tehran and soon expanded his work to Tehran city center.Since June 2012 A1one resided in Germany.After he had been kidnapped by Iranian Civil police…Accused wrongly to be a political activist. A1one Has never been interested in Politics but social subjects have always been the base for the artist’s viewpoint and body of works.

Blog Saatchi Gallery: Stellar Street Artists You Should Know

Hyuro   Argentinian-born, currently based in Valencia, Spain

When you live in a city like London, street art is so integrated into the urban milieu that it becomes easy to casually glide past a thought-provoking artwork (that just-so-happened to be seductively created whilst avoiding authorities in the dead of night.)

That is not to say London-dwellers do not appreciate the sparks of colour and wisps of paint, but when wandering more east to areas like Shoreditch or Camden, it becomes strange not to have a piece of well-thought-out hues in your line of sight.

Today – even your second-cousin in Shreveport has heard of Banksy – and the sexy street art scene is now teeming with renegade talent. We hope this blog will rekindle an appreciation for the bandits who paint our city into an even more beautiful juxtaposition of old and new.

Let’s celebrate street art today, in London and abroad:

She resembles someone I like, especially her lips. Art by David Walker.

Beautiful. The bricks in the background give a texture that is its own artistic element. An example of how the best graffiti works.
