    An age old practice, graffiti holds special significance as one of the elements of hip hop culture. Graffiti as an urban art form has existed since at least the 1950s,the link between hip hop and graffiti evolved as a competition, much like the dance moves of the hip hop culture.            Graffiti in hip hop began as a way of "tagging" for one's crew/gang, and developed during the 1970s on the subways of New York, and later expanded to the city walls themselves. Graffiti began to show up on subways in New York and other cities as a form of expression of the culture who listened to rap music.   Graffiti is considered one of the four elements of hip hop (along with emceeing, DJing, and B-Boying).

    In 2006, Zachęta—Poland's National Gallery of Art—presented Polish Painting of the 21st Century, a special exhibition dedicated to the country's most acclaimed modern and contemporary artists. To set the stage for the eclectic show, Leon Tarasewicz covered the museum's grand staircase in a kaleidoscope of colors. Founded in 1860, the Zachęta Gallery is Warsaw's oldest museum to show contemporary art. While it does possess a permanent collection, the gallery's exhibition space is used entirely for temporary shows, culminating in an exciting and always-changing atmosphere. Tarasewicz—a contemporary Polish painter known for his abstract aesthetic composed of bold lines and graphic patterns—is an extreme example of an artist whose work totally transformed the space. Using the gallery as a literal canvas, Tarasewicz splashed paint on its beautiful classical staircase. Though it may appear spontaneous and haphazard, the site-specific piece actually conveys a balanced and well thought-out composition. At the top of the staircase, three sets of stairs meet, connecting the museum's exhibition halls and perfectly framing Pius Weloński's stunning Gladiator statue. Before the sets of stairs were speckled with paint spatter, Tarasewicz painted each one a different base color (blue, red, or yellow) so that, when the stairs meet, the colors beautifully bleed together and cascade down the steps. By adding this modern, Pollock-esque twist to the monumental building, Tarasewicz captured the Zachęta Gallery's avant-garde approach and contemporary focus with flying colors—literally!           Source: Mymodernmet Article By: Kelly Richman-Abdouan

    Typographic Graffiti Turns Building Into Masterpieces  Grafitti artist Daku created a stunning typographic piece of art using sunlight instead of paint. Titled ‘Time Changes Everything’, the piece visualises the concept of time with the help of letters and shadows. Words such as curiosity, charm, love, reality, and life can be read only from 09:30 AM to 14:30 PM – when a shadow falls directly on the wall. As the sun sets, the letters fade. Cool, huh? The piece can be found at the Lodhi Colony of New Delhi or take a look at some pics below!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Source: borepanda Image credits: Pranav Gohil & St+art India

    A few months ago I shared some of the Family Friendly Street Art my kids and I make – painting rocks or sticks or leaves and hiding them around town to bring a smile to passers-by. This year we decided to massively expand the idea and take it to Grand Rapids MI during the world’s largest ArtPrize. In the past, my three oldest kids and I would paint around 40 objects to hide in town. But this time around, all six of my kids and I spent a year painting over 1,000 rocks! We painted all of them in matching pairs. Half of them are gathered together for display at the Children’s Museum so visitors can grasp the scope of it all. The other matching half are tucked around town in random places for families to spot and photograph. It’s like a giant game of I-Spy… or a real-life version of Pokemon GO! More info: artprize.org   My 6 kids and I painted over 1,000 rocks with a variety of fun faces.     We painted all of them in matching pairs.
