“Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. Other terms for this type of art include “independent public art”, “post-graffiti”, and “neo-graffiti”, and is closely related with guerrilla art” is what Wikipedia says. What it doesn’t say, is how much more there is to explore within this “unsanctioned” way of expressing oneself.
The Bookcase by Jan Is De Man and Deef Feed
This apartment building in Utrecht will no longer look the same, as two street artists Jan Is De Man and Deef Feed made sure their favourite books are placed on its ‘shelves’ in an extraordinarily realistic manner. Their Bookcase graffiti has a 3D effect which brightens up the dormitory area of the city.
Theory of Time by Daku
Like many of the graffiti makers, Daku chose to remain incognito to the public and sends his insightful messages via the streets of India, the country he originally comes from. His “Theory of Time” installation was created as a part of Serendipity Festival 2018. Goan abundant sunlight appeared to work for the artist, casting shadows on the street and filling it with the philosophical time-focused narrative.
Graffiti by Kitt Bennett
Kitt Bennett is a Melbourne based artist, who specialises in illustration and murals. Kitt dedicates his art to “exploring topics of individuality, existence and everything mysterious that encompasses a human nature”. His large-scale illustration murals can be fully appreciated only from a bird’s eye view, and these enormous pictures look as if cartoon characters have run into our reality.
