This is the year-end final art piece for drawing. This piece’s theme was popular culture and I took graffiti to be one of the many forms of popular culture.
In this work, I tried to challenge the use of graffiti by veering it to the more original drawing style. This piece is a one continuous line drawing and the four words represent my idea of graffiti and what stimulates people to do such things. There is also a play on word linking the relation of gang influence and feelings.
The unclear style also relates back to the normal style of graffiti, where words may be unrecognizable and not make sense. However, it changes the idea of normal graffiti and brings it to a more formal, fine-arts method, thus allowing it to be on the blur of the line between classical drawing styles and street styles.
