Transcript of Street Art
Removing the art started a debate. Some people thought it should have been left where the artist placed it. Others believe it was right to preserve the work before it was destroyed. Still others argued the building’s owner should decide. At the time, no one knew who owned the factory. It had been abandoned for more than 50 years. Now an owner has come forward and filed a lawsuit to get the painting back—it could be worth a lot of money. Other works by Banksy have sold for more than $100,000. What is Street Art? Street art is art, specifically visual art, developed in public spaces — that is, "in the streets" — though the term usually refers to unsanctioned art, as opposed to government sponsored initiatives. The term can include traditional graffiti artwork, sculpture, stencil graffiti, Lock On´s, sticker art, wheatpasting and street poster art, video projection, art intervention, guerrilla art, and street installations. ‘Street’ artists do not aspire to change the definition of an artwork, but rather to question the existing environment with its own language. They attempt to have their work communicate with everyday people about socially relevant themes in ways that are informed by esthetic values without being imprisoned by them. Max Collins
