Colorful Street Art Gives Rio de Janeiro a Fresh Look

Colorful Street Art Gives Rio de Janeiro a Fresh Look | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it
Editor’s note: Last week, the author published a post on street art in Buenos Aires. This is her second post about street art in South America.

Graffiti in Rio de Janerio is some of the most festive, whimsical and lighthearted graffiti I’ve seen anywhere. Though the street art feels like it’s being taken seriously, the pervasive style is bold, playful, colorful, and full of bizarre scenes, stylized characters and undecipherable situations.

The City of Rio has lax graffiti laws that most likely serve their own self-interest, and the city legally allows street artists to paint on rundown and decrepit walls. Though the economic heart and cultural center of Brazil is still considered to be São Paulo, Rio is on the verge of a new era, with money pouring into the city for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic games.

Home to several graffiti collectives such as Nação Graffiti, Rio has a vibrant scene of local artists. As the artist Vik Muniz has said, “Rio is not a city for art, it’s a city for artists.” This sentiment echoes so many recent critiques aimed at major urban art hubs like New York City, where being a working artist has become more and more difficult as the cost of living continues to rise....

OTP’s Guide to Street Art: Berlin

OTP’s Guide to Street Art: Berlin | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

The Berlin Wall toppled over 20 years ago and domino-effected the whole city into a street art stronghold that still stands tall today. Like the city it decorates, Berlin’s street art speaks the creative, free spirit of its people who fight control by coloring the machine’s monotony. Don’t hop the border by yourself, OTP’s here to paint the picture on how street art unifies East with West in the most graffitified city in the world.

Graffiti in Berlin was first thrown up in the early ‘60s in response to the creation of the Berlin Wall. In case you spent high school history class dwelling on masturbatory after-school activities, the Wall was a big, bad frontline for the Cold War which separated East (communist) and West Berlin....

Lost in Buenos Aires, Street Art Got Me Home

Lost in Buenos Aires, Street Art Got Me Home | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it
On a recent vacation to South America, I accidently became lost in the middle of Buenos Aires. Separated from my partner who had the maps, money, hotel name and address, not to mention a command of the native language, I panicked.

Should I ask to use someone’s internet or phone? Instead I wandered the streets hoping I would somehow magically run across my travel partner, and as it turned out later, we were wandering the same five or ten blocks looking for each other. Finally, after asking for a map from a nearby clothing store, I tried to get my bearings.

I had already been in Buenos Aires for several days, and as I headed in the direction I thought my hotel was in, I found myself recognizing the street art that I had been seeing since my arrival. After each turn I could tell immediately whether I had made the right decision; a familiar colorful mural with the bright eyes of a devious child welcomed me as I turned onto a correct street. It was murals, familiar and eye-catching, that gave me the kind of assurance we normally get from knowing an exact address. Based only on the local street art, I was able to find my way easily back to the hotel.

Street art in Buenos Aires has a very different history than graffiti in the States. Graffiti began in Buenos Aires back in the 1950s, when the dictatorial government coming into power paid people to write slogans and spread what was essentially political graffiti. In the 1970s all forms of self-expression came to a halt, and nothing appeared on the streets again until the 1990s, when hip-hop reached South America and spawned it’s own brand of tag-like graffiti. The street art movement first took shape in 2001,....

Jesus Christ is Street Art | According 2 G

Jesus Christ is Street Art | According 2 G | World of Street & Outdoor Arts | Scoop.it

Have you seen Jesus? You haven’t? No one living has either. And why? Because he’s nothing more than science fiction! How on earth is it possible that a guy from the Middle East would have totally white skin and would be immortalized in 2000 years of paintings being the wrong color? Something doesn’t add up! Send me to hell for blasphemy. It’s horizontal to where we are standing now, if it exists, according2g. And perhaps it only exists in the mind. Why don’t you think about that for a while before you judge another, you pious prick! Ho fucking Ho!
