The Urban Art Mystery - Scott Benites

Painting: Giclee prints.

Love or hate it, but Graffiti is a part of the every day urban world. It's fact that Banksy and other well-known street artists, who're now household names, have busted the entire urban art scene wide open, attracted it cutting border to the public's focus and it seems that the room to sit on that the fence having an opinion concerning whether it is a kind of vandalism or art just got a great deal narrower. People started to graffiti as a kind of artwork when paint began hitting on the NYC subways. Gangs of artists began to develop. It meant the quality of graffiti became more essential than its quantity when rivalry between crews became rife. 

Graffiti nevertheless to this day remains an artwork and the city governments across the world spend millions cleaning up it. Some would question, just what's the point of taking the risk to do and spending time? Others will argue rules create no character, a city or self reflection. Some people consider that the simplest thing such as photographing objects represents as being an art form that is acceptable. While graffiti art in the grateful eye, only uses the metropolitan environment as a creative canvas to showcase a cutting-edge talent. 

So is Graffiti, artwork or vandalism? Well. The famous saying artwork is in that the eye of that the beholder can't be better suited to be able to cast your very own opinion, no matter what government laws try to propose upon you.

The old water towers of New York City are a reminder of the cities past. The water towers capture the sprit of New York City’s skyline. The purpose of this painting was to expose the water tower that is often overlooked. The serene clouds  blessed and balanced the composition. The clouds appear to pass gracefully and carefree.
