Walking through Graffiti


The intention of my portfolio was to explore the impact of graffiti on the urban environment and the public. Born as rebellious vandalism and mostly painted stealthily at night, graffiti have, over time, evolved into elaborated artworks created in open daylight.In recent years, entire metropolitan areas have changed their appearance for the better, thanks to ever present graffiti. Hence, I was keen to discover whether the general acceptance of graffiti as an urban art-form has led to an active relationship by us, the public, with street art: do we ignore, engage or unconsciously blend into such colourful works?After months of living and breathing the graffiti in parts of London, I have tried to capture the fascinating tale of urban space repossession and the spontaneous symbiosis between street art and the public.
