Favorite Art - what inspires you ?

For me this morning it's anything from this site :STREET ART UTOPIA We declare the world as our canvas

I've been a long time fan of Banksy and ElMac :

Banksy :

El Mac :


What does any of this have to do with ecomodding ? Well...hmmm.. art is a good way to disguise your aero mods ! :

I have since added some (painted) gap fillers to the front wheels.

Hmmm ...now i see why no images appear except the one of my car :

" The owner of this website (STREET ART UTOPIA We declare the world as our canvas) does not allow hotlinking to that resource (/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/3782631801_d413a10a89_o2.jpg). "

You know this how, exactly?

On second thought, perhaps I'd rather not know the answer :-)

How street art differs from graffiti, is that street art has the potential to make a person smile, or laugh.
It has the potential to make someone think of things in a different way, or appreciate something they normally never would.

It sometimes tells a political or moral message, and all in an easy to understand image.

Grafitti is something entirely different. This type of 'graffiti' is art, but for the masses.
If Banksy did his art on canvas, only a select few would see his art, and those few would be actively searching for it.
By doing his art in public places, he reaches a mass audience, many of whom would never see his work if he had kept it private.

So how street artist differ from ordinary vandals, is by uplifting a large percentage of the population - by giving them something as simple as a smile.

Vandals, on the other hand simply are there to torment the population.

+1 I don't see street art covered up by paint, most business owners in L.A will leave good street art sprayed on their buildings.
