Street Art-10 Starts now

November 19th, 2023
Many thanks to Danette @danette for hosting Street Art 9. Thanks to all who submitted photos and to those who voted for my photo and for all the finalists.

Art on the street can be any form of artistic enhancement of built spaces or structures—wall art, sculptures, art installations, even graffiti.

Having said that, I think that there is a lot of tension between street art and graffiti. Street art is usually images, or installations, or sculptures done with permission and often commissioned to enhance particular spaces or streetscapes.

Grafitti seems often to be more about tags or sometimes random lettering. Some graffiti is really clever and artistic, but graffiti can also be invasive and damaging of people's property or public spaces, as well as visually intrusive and often an expression of urban grunge. There's a contested area between graffiti and street art that maybe photographs can express and illustrate.

From the original posting of this challenge, some tips for capturing your street art:
