Love it or hate it, street art is hard to ignore. For some, it brings colour and movement to the city. For others it’s just one more anti-vandal job for local councils.
For me, it is a vibrant reimagining of urban spaces that pulls us out of the every day. Walk with me through the streets of Hobart, Tasmania.
This is definitely my art gallery of choice…
Street artists work with an imperfect canvas, often in the dark and the avoided corners of our cities. What they create is a different perspective, a fresh take on an old story.
Still not convinced? Banksy has the last word: “People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish… but that’s only if it’s done properly.” Amen to that.
