Hobos, or tramps, were itinerant workers and wanderers who illegally hopped freight cars on the newly expanding railroad in the United States in the late 19th century. They used graffiti, also known as tramp writing, as a messaging system to tell their fellow travelers where they were and where they were going. Hobos would carve or draw their road persona, or moniker, on stationary objects near railroad tracks, like water towers and bridges.
Un mural a aparut in LA unde doar pentru cei cu peste 20.000 followeri puteau sa intre in cortul amenajat sa-l vada. Dupa cateva zile, muralul a devenit public, iar cateva zile si mai tarziu, a fost desenat altceva peste el.
Ideea din spatele acestui proiect ii apartine lui Dillon Francis.
STRAKER is an Australian street artist who paints unique murals that appear to light up the streets. His pieces look just like real neon signs, but they are actually 2D and created using only spray paint and a special technique that makes them pop off the wall.

Dupa vechiul scandal cu ZARA care “imprumuta” design-uri (vezi articol AICI), vine randul unui alt brand super cunoscut cu super multi bani, sa testeze artistii.
Pe scurt, REVOK a facut un graffiti ca de obicei pe un perete in NY; H&M vine si isi filmeaza/pozeaza hainele in fata acelui perete; REVOK se supara ca lucrarea/imaginea lui ajunge fundal pentru H&M si cere compensatie intr-un cadru juridic; H&M refuza si vrea intr-un cadru juridic sa legalizeze folosirea tuturor lucrarilor stradale ilegale (street art & co.) pentru scopuri publicitare.
Sucks! Dar REVOK, REYES si STEEL au mai actionat acum ceva timp brandul Roberto Cavalli pentru un lucru similar si au castigat.

The documentary The Art Of Hustle highlights street artist Tysen Knight‘s growth in the culture of street art with a perfect balance between risk and reward. Street art has become a hustle for worldwide recognition.
In forty years, graffiti has grown from a local New York subculture into a worldwide phenomenon with its own heroes and business models. Embraced as urban decoration or buffed by all means, graffiti has escaped a slow death, mainly thanks to the internet. Actions in the real world are increasingly carried out and documented with their digital distribution in mind, leading to refreshing self-reflection and an emphasis on the performative nature of writing.
Don’t tell the taggers, but graffiti has evolved into a mature, varied artform that doesn’t shy away from difficult themes and that combines resistance against repression with a contagious hacker mentality. Meanwhile, the kick of illegality continues to be an important motivation, inextricably linked to kudos and street credibility.??
