Museums and galleries were being frequented by schools and not by the public at large. So they decided to drag that mountain out to Mohammed – and bring the arts and the culture to the people by displaying it on the streets where all could see it. Love it. And be moved or changed by the art.
Graffiti to me is and has always been a true form of art. It’s an expression of today’s culture. Since men have lived in caves we’ve been drawn to draw on the walls. It will always exist and if you cannot fight it then allow the artists to make any surface their canvas.
This is a prompted piece by The Daily Post at WordPress.com: Culture.
These pictures were taken in Montreal during a family visit. I’ve always been wanting to roam the streets and capture as much of the wall art as possible. My visits in Montreal are always family focused, to run off and to a photo hike would be selfish. On my last trip I did however get to capture a few gems.
