Should street art be permitted for known artists?

December 9, 2016

Street art is a phenomenon of urban culture, the possibility of city transformation, artist’s dialog with the street. It aims at interacting not only with those who go to the museums and galleries but also with ordinary people who walk the streets. The reaction to the street art and its assessment can be very different: from the accusations of artists in vandalism to the admiration and appreciation of ordinary people for decorating the gray walls of large cities.

On the one hand, anyone can create street art: it’s not necessary to have artistic skills or to graduate from art school. Nevertheless, street art is conceptual: it speaks to the viewer in an accessible and understandable language. With this in mind, street art can be performed by a beginner who has little skill in artistic technique. On the other hand, in addition to the idea, which the artist seeks to convey while doing street art, skills are also needed.
