Hi everyone, I’ve been a follower of street art for a few years now, taking photos of what’s new and different. I’ve got quite a large collection and have been wondering what to do, so I thought I would share some of these with you.
Invariably hobbies are about keeping one ‘off the streets’ but capturing street art is the complete opposite. There’s always another undiscovered laneway or alley to be discovered. And with all hobbies, you never reach an end where there is nothing more. Street art particularly is ever-changing and sometimes 6 months can be a long time for something to be around. But, I do understand that some people can’t come at it, so I’ve taken the opportunity to proffer some other items for you too.
What I am trying to find out is... is it art or not? At what point does something become a piece of art. Please let me know your thoughts.
Let’s face it, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and not everything that we see, we like and you can never get everyone to agree on the same thing. So, let’s work through a few categories and examples which I have put up for everyone to see.
