GRAFFITI IS ART

Graffiti walls are no longer just spray painting your name and the current year on a brick wall in scribbled handwriting. Now, people are creating absolutely amazing street art and graffiti all around the world.

If you appreciate modern art and more of an urban culture, street art is definitely something for you to admire.

I grew up pretty close to Manchester and would often wonder around the city on a weekend. I particularly love to walk around the streets in the Northern Quarter of Manchester and admire all the amazing artwork on the walls.

A lot of the art I’ve seen in the streets of Manchester represents and relates to cultural and political issues. There have also been murals in memory of people who have been tragically lost. From David Bowie to the Manchester Bee’s. The street art really shows how supportive and caring the people of this city are.

Sadly, I have yet had the opportunity to visit Brighton, but I want to go sooo bad! However, I did some research on the street art of Brighton and I’m in love. Brighton to me seems like such a diverse and friendly place to be. Everything seems very artsy and creative so no wonder the graffiti is insane.

From Banksy pieces to murals of musicians and huge colourful pieces of art, this city never seems to be short of something amazing to look at and obviously to share on Instagram!

Graffiti street art honestly baffles me sometimes. I love art so much and it is crazy to me how someone can create such insane artwork on a brick wall. Sometimes I honestly can’t get my head around how someone can use spray paint to create portraits, landscapes and cartoon inspired pieces of art. Just like tattoos, artists creating work that is so detailed without the usual pencil and paper is incredible.

Street art is basically a free art gallery and an amazing way for artists to showcase their work and talents.

What’s your favourite graffiti wall or piece of street art?
