My first post here. Sorry if I did something wrong (still don't know the rules). This is a very short text about how art is becoming mostly street art today.
Here are some more artworks I did during the last months. I think the subject is
something like "human doubts in a sea of oddity". I spreaded these images around the
web and exhibited them in public rooms that let me do it.
Doing this, as a full time artist, it happen to me to think that art is today just another
source of images in a world that produces and uses thousands of images every day. There
is a great demand of images, yes. But the value of a single image rarely is more than
some cents - and rarely these few cents go to the author of the image.
So we – we artists and image-makers - walk around with wide opened eyes, taking
everything our eyes meet and leaving some new image on the road. And sometime
selling them, of course.
At the end, I could say that nowadays every work of art is a work of street art.
So, this is the point. I say it again: nowadays, every work of art is a work of street art.
Is it true? If you think at the world as a web of streets – real, virtual and metaphorical
streets – I could say that yes, we live in the Street Art Era. We add artworks to the bunch
of images rolling trough the world for a little fee, or for free.
Of course there is still the Market of art, and it doesn't even want to listen about cheap
artworks or artworks left along the streets. But so many artworks go around meeting
many eyes and no buyers: they do have a weight. Perhaps this weight, this undefined
worth is the way art is playing its role today.
